The goal of this project is to evaluate the GC-MS properties of a series of twelve regioisomeric and isobaric ring substituted phenethylamines with identical molecular weight and major fragmentation ions. Three regioisomeric 3,4-methylenedioxyphenethylamines have been reported as components of clandestine drug samples in recent years. These drugs of abuse are a total of a subset of six methylenedioxyphenethylamines of identical molecular weight yielding regioisomeric fragment ions of equal mass in the electron impact mass spectra.
