The mass spectra of 37 imidazoles are reported and discussed. The spectra exhibit pronounced molecular ions and characteristic fragmentation patterns. The fragmentation modes have been substantiated by deuterium labelling, exact mass measurements, and appropriate metastable ions. Skeletal rearrangement fragments are rare in these spectra; consequently mass spectrometry is useful for structure elucidation of imidazoles.
