abstract

  • The mass spectra of copper chelates of 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol, HX, prepared by different methods, are discussed. Peaks due to Cu(2)X(2)(+), CuX(2)(+) and CuXCl(+) have been positively identified and all copper-containing species have the expected isotopic ratios. The significance of probe temperature and impurities are discussed and it is concluded that the spectra are more in accordance with the known chemical facts than those reported earlier by Betteridge and John.
