On the other hand the low energy barrier between the cis and the trans isomer seem to indicate a fast interconversion between these two structural isomers.
In the negative-ion mode, the structural isomers MMA and SA are indistinguishable from each other (Fig.
The addition of accurate mass MS/MS spectral library search provides even more confidence of results by discriminating between the large number of possible structural isomers.
We developed a new approach that enables a quantitative prediction of the architecture of linear, branched, and cyclic self-assembled nanostructures, their aggregation numbers and size distribution, and the formation of structural isomers.
structural isomers that coelute); in such cases, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy can be used, even though it does not have the same inherent sensitivity as MS in the selected ion monitoring mode.
