Ion/molecule reactions in nitrotoluene/NO and nitroluene/OCS systems were studied in an ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer. The formation of an adduct ion between m-nitrotoluene and NO (or OCS to a lesser extent) differentiates it from the o- and p-nitrotoluene isomers can be distinguished by their different decomposition rates into C7H6NO+ and C7H6NO+ fragment ions.
