Mass Spectrometric Characterization of Electron Attachment Reaction Products
Neutral electron attachment reaction products of selected analytes were characterized with a dual column gas chromatography mass spectrometry system. The characterization confirmed that electron attachment reaction of polychlorinated aromatics lead to the formation of hydrodechlorination products. Nitroaromatics, by contrast, do not yield any discernable neutral products. Nitroaromatic molecules therefore may be amenable to solute modulation through electron attachment reactions.
