In contrast to the usual expectation in chemical ionization (CI) mass spectrometry, the CI spectra of a series of aryl 4-nitro-Δ'-cyclohexenes show very low intensity protonated molecular ions while a major share of the ion current is carried by rearrangement ions. The intervention of a rearrangement long known in the solvolysis of cyclohexenyl carbenium ions can account for the observed CI behaviour.
