Interpreting the fragmentation pattern of the mass spectrum of propanamide

[M]+ is the molecular ion peak (M) with an m/z of 73 corresponding to [C3H7NO]+, the original propanamide molecule minus an electron, [CH3CH2CONH2]+.

The small M+1 peak at m/z 74, corresponds to an ionised propanamide molecule with one 13C atom in it i.e. an ionised propanamide molecule of formula 13C12C2H7NO

Identifying the species giving the most prominent peaks (apart from M) in the fragmentation pattern of propanamide.

m/z value of [fragment]+ 72 57 55 44 29 15
[molecular fragment]+ [C3H6NO]+ [CH3CH2C=O]+ [C3H3O]+ [O=C-NH2]+ [CH3CH2]+ [CH3]+

Analysing and explaining the principal ions in the fragmentation pattern of the mass spectrum of propanamide

Equations to explain the most abundant ion peaks of propanamide

Formation of m/z 57 ion: [CH3CH2CONH2]+  ===>  [CH3CH2C=O]+  +  NH2

Formation of m/z 44 ion: [CH3CH2CONH2]+  ===>  [O=C-NH2]+  +  CH3CH2

The m/z 44 ion is the base peak, the most abundant 'stable' ion fragment.

Formation of m/z 29 ion: [CH3CH2CONH2]+  ===>  [CH3CH2]+  +  CONH2

Formation of m/z 15 ion: [three of above]+  ===>  [CH3]+  +  residue
