    Department of Chemistry, Sacred Heart College, Thevara, Cochin, Kerala, India
    J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 20:805-18. 2009
    ..The proposed mechanisms for cyclization and fragmentation are supported by high-mass resolving power data, tandem mass spectra, deuterium labeling, and molecular orbital calculations...

    Joseph T Moolayil
    Department of Chemistry, Sacred Heart College Thevara, Cochin, Kerala, India
    J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 18:2204-17. 2007
    ..Using a mass spectrometer as a reaction vessel, we demonstrate that, upon protonation, a nitro group becomes an electrophile and participates in cyclization reactions in the gas phase...
