The mass spectral behavior of amino acid methyl ester phosphoramidate derivatives have been investigated using electrospray ionization multistage mass spectrometry (ESI-MSn) and moderate theoretical calculations at the B3LYP/6-31G(d) level. A novel methyl group migration to the phosphoryl group with the formation of the intermediate cyclic aminoacylphosphoramidate was found. The proposed structures of the rearrangement ions were confirmed by high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry. A possible mechanism involving the pentacoordinate phosphoric-carboxylic phosphate anhydride was proposed, in which the metal ion coordination with the phosphoryl and carbonyl groups and the intrinsic properties of phosphoryl group might be the key factors responsible for this novel migration.
