FUSINITE (from Westfield Fusain)
Scotland suspension in methanol; 20 yg standard 3 X 104
remarks - This spectrum is dominated by (alkyl)benzenes, m/z 78, 92, etc. and (alkyl) naphthalenes, m/z 128, 142, etc.. This agrees well with a possible charcoal nature and origin of fusinite (ref. 194). Note further the relatively low sulphur-containing ion signals at m/z 34 and 48, although m/z 64 and 76 show well pronounced peaks.
