Determining the formula of an organic compound from mass spec data.

  1. May 2, 2010 #1
    I am trying to figure out how you can get the formula of a compound when you are given mass spec data. The mass spectra data I have are m/z and the % of base peak. If there is anyone that can guide me in the right direction, that would be awesome :)
