Interpreting the mass spectrum of benzene C6H6
[M]+ is the molecular ion peak (M) with an m/z of 78 corresponding to [C6H6]+, the original molecule minus an electron.
The small M+1 peak at m/z 79, corresponds to an ionised benzene molecule with one 13C atom in it i.e. an ionised molecule of formula [13C12C5H6]+
The most abundant ion of the molecule under mass spectrometry investigation (benzene) is usually given an arbitrary abundance value of 100, called the base ion peak, and all other abundances ('intensities') are measured against it.
Identifying the species giving the most prominent peaks (apart from M) in the fragmentation pattern of benzene.
Unless otherwise indicated, assume the carbon atoms in benzene are the 12C isotope.
Some of the possible positive ions, [molecular fragment]+, formed in the mass spectrometry of benzene.
