REMARKS - Note the correspondence with stigmasterol (Spectrum D.10) with regard to the homologous i on series at m/z 28, 42, etc. However, the series at m/z 54, 68, etc. now attains its maximum intensity at m/z 82 instead of m/z 96, apparently reflecting the substitution of a methyl group for the ethyl group in the olefinic side-chai n. A prominent fragment ion is observed at m/z 67, probably derived from the molecular ion species at m/z 82 (compare with stigmasterol (Spectrum D.10)).
