Abstract

After the failure of conventional chemical and physical attempts for structural differentiation between C2V and D2h, symmetries in the bishomocubane dione cage compounds of photochemical origin (4 and 5), this was achieved using an approach which combines mass spectrometry with isotopic labeling techniques and symmetry considerations. The isomeric cages of C2 symmetry (3) exhibit also interesting characteristic fragmentation patterns, under electron impact, which are inter alia of diagnostic value.
