Chapter 14, Problem 14.37P
Textbook Problem

Because of the sensitivity of mass spectrometry, it is often used to detect the presence of drugs in blood, urine, or other biological fluids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (nominal mass 314), a component of marijuana, exhibits two strong fragment ions at m/z 246 and 231 (the base peak). What is the likely structure of each ion?
