Mass (m/z): 247 (M+), 175, 135, 107.

The structure of the compounds 4b, 4c, 4f, 4i was further supported by its mass spectral data, which showed molecular ion peak M+ respectively at m/z 346, at m/z 301, at m/z 281, at m/z 247,corresponding to the molecular formula respectively C15H12N3O2Cl3Br 135 and 107, at m/z 135 and 107, at m/z 175, 135 and 107., C15H12N3O2Cl, C16H15N3O2, C13H17N3O2. Further peaks of 4b, 4c, 4f, 4i were observed respectively at m/z 211, 135 and 107, at m/z 166.
