Interpreting the fragmentation pattern of the mass spectrum of methylamine
[M]+ is the molecular ion peak with an m/z of 31 corresponding to [CH5N]+, the original methylamine molecule minus an electron, [CH3NH2]+.
The most abundant ion of the molecule under mass spectrometry investigation (methylamine) is usually given an arbitrary abundance value of 100, called the base ion peak, and all other abundances ('intensities') are measured against it.
Identifying the species giving the most prominent peaks (apart from M) in the fragmentation pattern of methylamine.
Unless otherwise indicated, assume the carbon atoms in methylamine are the 12C isotope.
Some of the possible positive ions, [molecular fragment]+, formed in the mass spectrometry of methylamine.
