Abstract

The formation of 2-substituted benzo[b]furan ions in the electron ionization (EI) mass spectra of a series of 6-alkyl- and 6-aryldibenzo(d,f)(1,3)dioxepines has been studied by means of exact mass measurements and multiple-stage mass spectrometry conditions using an ion trap mass spectrometer. The proposed mechanism of formation of benzo[b]furan ions requires the formation of a spirocyclic cyclohexadienone system, which undergoes elimination of a cyclopentadienone molecule. A parallel with the chemical conversion of arylmethyl-substituted dibenzo(d,f)(1,3)dioxepines into an analogous spirocyclic system was also underlined.
