Long-chain aldehydes, encountered as insect pheromones, were converted into Schiff bases with 3-aminopyridine, 3-(aminomethyl)pyridine, or 2-aminopyrimidine to provide derivatives suitable for revealing the alkyl chain structure by mass spectrometry. The two pyridine-containing derivatives were satisfactory in initiating a radical-induced cleavage. of the… (More)
