Problem

Which of the following is *not* true about the molecular ion in mass spectrometry?

a) The mass of the molecular ion is viewed as equivalent to the mass of the molecule.

b) The ion is produced by a loss of two electrons from the molecule.

c) The molecular ion is often unstable and can undergo fragmentation.

d) The molecular ion is produced by loss of one electron from the molecule.

e) none of these
