Ion chemistry of the methylcarbonate anion

  title={Ion chemistry of the methylcarbonate anion},
  author={Roger Nicholas Hayes and Russell J. Waugh and John Hamilton Bowie},
The ion MeOCO fragments upon collisional activation by competitive losses of Me, CH2 and CO2. The loss of formaldehyde involves hydride-ion transfer to form HCO. MeOCO reacts as a methoxyl-ion donor in a characteristic reaction with sulphur dioxide, i.e. MeOCO + SO2→ MeOSO+ CO2.
