Abstract Molecular structures of organic substances with low molecular weight can be determined with some probability from low resolution mass spectra by linear, binary, adaptive classifiers. 250 mass spectra were used as a training set to compute such classifiers for 31 different molecular structures; other 250 mass spectra were used to test the predictive ability P. The best preprocessing of the spectral data was the logarithmic transformation of the intensities and normalization to the base peak. If the training set contains only some members of a certain class, P is very low for spectra of this class and the trained classifier is not useful. After critical examination only 10 molecular structures remained, which are suitable for this method of automatic mass spectra interpretation.
