The electrospray ionisation mass spectra of the neoflavanoids brazilin and hematoxylin are reported in both their reduced (1 and 2, respectively) and their oxidised forms (3 and 4, respectively). In the reduced forms, breakdown pathways under collision induced decomposition (CID) conditions produce fragments characteristic of rings A and C; in their oxidised forms, the fragments are characteristic of rings B and D. The structural assignments of the fragments are substantiated by recording the spectra after deuterium exchange at the hydroxyl groups.
