Abstract: Of all theoretically possible positional isomers of methyl O-acetyl-β-D-xylopyranosides, trifluoroacetyl derivatives have been prepared and studied by combination of electron impact mass spectrometry and gas chromato­graphy. All positional isomers are separated on an OV-225 column. The positions of acetyl groups in mono-O-acetyl derivatives may be established unambiguously from the intensities of peaks with m/z 182, 225, and 278. The mass spectra of di-0-acetyl derivatives differ from each other only negli­gibly. Therefore, in characterization of these derivatives the retention times relative to fully acetylated methyl  β-D-xylopyranoside (RRT) have to be considered.
