# Pentabromophenol Mass Spectrum

I am working on analyzing the mass spectrum of pentabromophenol but am struggling to determine the fragment at 60 m/z. It could possibly be 5 carbons however that is too much positive charge to exist at high abundance.

Below are the mass spec retrieved experimentally and from literature.

Literature Mass spec: NIST WebBook

Experimentally determined mass spectrum:

• Can you give a zoom-in of the region around 55 - 65 m/z? – Curt F. Dec 8 '15 at 14:32

It seems to have the 1:1 $\ce{Br}$ ratio spaced by 1.
I think a reasonable assignment would be that it is $\ce{[BrCCOH]^2+}$
