Abstract

This paper provides analytical chemical information on a range of psycho-active drugs. This analytical chemical information on liquid chromatography-electrospray ionisation-mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS), ion trap mass spectrometry (ESI-MS `'), gas chromatography-flame ionisation detection (GLC-FID) and polarographic behaviour is then incorporated into a database which is of use in drug characterisation. Application is found in the determination of selected drug compounds in hair samples. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
