Hi, I was doing the most recent F322 Chemistry Paper (June 2014)
and came across a mass spec fragmentation question that I can't do.

Compound G is a branched chain organic compound that does NOT have E/Z isomers.
Elemental analysis of Compound G gave the following percentage composition by mass - C-55.8%, H-7% and O-37.2%
Calculate the empirical and molecular formula - I did this and got C2H3O and got C4H6O2 from reading the mass specta which is correct.
However, it's the next part i got stuck on - Write the formula for the particles for Peak X (41) and Peak Y (45) The answer for 41 = C3H5+
and for 45 it's COOH+
But i don't get how this work? can someone explain pls?

Yeah I don't really understand it either, the only thing I can think of, is if it were cyclopropanoic acid? However this is a cyclic hydrocarbon, but I don't know if its also considered branched as it has the COOH group branching off it.. its the only thing I can think of that works.. it can't butenoic acid as it has a C=C double bond which will show E/Z isomerism.. if it in theory it was cyclopropanoic acid, CH2CH2CH2COOH the bond between the two carbons in bold would split making a 41 peak of C3H5+ and a 45 peak of COOH+
All I can think of sorry..:')
Also do you have an electronic copy of the 2014 paper? If so could you link it to me as I can't seem to find the june 2014 paper anyway!>(( thanks

Yeah but doesn't branched mean when there's a carbon coming off another carbon at the top or bottom e.g 2,dibromopropane etc?
I guess i'll ask my teacher.
and no i don't have an electronic copy sorry..

Hi
Im also looking for the electronic file of that paper but I don't mind pictures taken from the paper. i was wondering if you could take pictures and PM me, i would really appreciate that

Many thanks

Hiya, would you be able to share the F322 2014 paper in whatever format. I'm retaking the exam externally this year so I'd like to use it as practice.


Thanks

Hey, nobody seems to divert their attention towards the need of others. I guess we would have to wait until sometime in may, before the actual exam. Then i will have the paper in my hand.
