Interpretation of Mass Spectra, fourth edition

Interpretation of Mass Spectra, say the authors, aims at correlating ion dissociation mechanisms on a much broader scale, with emphasis on basic attributes such as ionization energies, proton affinities, and bond dissociation energies . They stress that the most important part of learning how to interpret unknown mass spectra is to practise doing it. Prof. McLafferty's text has become a classic for classroom or self study concerned with interpreting mass spectra in order to discern molecular structures or identities of compounds.
