Abstract

Hydroxylamines, oximes and hydroxamic acids have been extensively studied by mass spectrometry. Different ionization techniques and mass spectrometry methods, such as high resolution, study of metastable ions, collision induced dissociations, together with chemical modifications and stable isotope labeling, have been used for investigating the gas phase properties and reactivity of radical cations, positively and negatively charged species produced by these classes of molecules.
