The fragmentation patterns in the spectra of 2-aryl-1,3-dithianes and -1,3-dithiolanes have been elucidated by deuterium labelling studies. Ortho effects are observed in the spectra of 2(o-alkoxyphenyl)-1,3-dithianes. The molecular ions of the 1,3-dithianes eliminate S2H· and metastable kpeaks substantiate these eliminations. The hydrogen involved in this elimination randomises (C-4, 5 and 6) Prior to elimination in the spectrum of 2-phenyl-1,3-dithiane, but originates mainly from C-5 in that of the bis propane-1,3-dithioacetal of terephthaldehyde.
