Homework Help: Mass spectrum-need 3 peak designations

  1. Aug 13, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I am assigning m/z peaks on a mass spectrum, and there are 3 peaks not on the chart given by the instructor, and I was wondering if anyone can help me determined their identities. The peaks I am unsure of are found at 95 m/z, 109 m/z, and 123 m/z; I already figured out the rest of them. Thanks!

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I already determined the 4 peaks on the left and the 2 on the right, and just need help with the peaks at 95 m/z, 109 m/z, and 123 m/z.

    Looks like the textbook example of bicyclo[n.o.t.]forbiddenene.
    I've seen this and a closely related structure, message[4.0.4]failurene, many times in my travels on the internet...
