Question on mass spectrometry

  1. May 1, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi. I'm trying to understand some of the peaks shown in this spectra:http://sdbs.db.aist.go.jp/sdbs/cgi-bin/direct_frame_top.cgi

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I do see why 86 would be the base peak, give the clear loss of CH3COO. However, because the rest of the peaks are relatively weak, I have no idea how to get a possible structure from it (I know it's already solved, but I want to know how could I do it). . I know it has nitrogen, but.. what else?

    The at 58 m/e is the one that confuses me the most, because it is the second highest peak and I don't know how I could get that fragment given the structure.

    Your link merely goes to the front page for that site. I use that site occasionally for FTIR spectra searches, but it is a bit wonky sometimes.

    Can you post an image of the spectra?
