The fragmentation of stereoisomeric androstanediol t‐butyldimethylsilyl ethers. A study by linked field scanning

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The major fragmentation pathways of eight isomeric androstane‐3,17‐diols, as their bis‐t‐butyldimethylsilyl ethers, were elucidated by linked scanning of the magnetic and electric fields in a double focusing mass spectrometer. Four competing pathways were observed, each characterized by losses of alkylsilanol moieties from a common [M–C4H9]+ precursor. Pronounced differences in the spectra obtained by linked scans complement the coventional mas spectra in the differentiation of the isomeric structures. Copyright © 1979 Heyden & Son Ltd
