Abstract: Anomeric pairs of methyl 3,5-di-O-acetyl-2-deoxy-D-erythro-pentofuranosides and methyl 3,4-di-O-acetyl-2-deoxy-D-erythro-pentopyranosides have been studied by electron impact and chemical ionization mass spectrometry. Electron impact fragmentation was verified by measurements of metastable transitions, as well as using collision-induced spectra, obtained after collision with helium atoms. The ring size can be unambiguously determined from electron impact spectra. Metastable and collision spectra of [M - OCH3]+ ions, as well as of [M + NH4]+ cluster ions, also reflect the ring size of the compounds under study. Configuration of the anomeric pairs cannot be determined unambiguously from the quantitative differences found in their spectra.
