Volume . Detection and Identification of Designer Drugs

Published: 1st November 2017 Author: Brian Thomas

Detection and Identification of Designer Drugs, a title in the Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series, presents both an overview and a guide to techniques for anyone studying or engaging in designer drug analysis. Proliferation of the synthesis and use of designer drugs is a serious public health problem with social, economic and legal implications.

Whether abuse is studied at the population level or the individual level, researchers need both background and highly detailed technical information on specific drugs and drug classes in order to combat the proliferation and highly damaging consequences of these substances. Author Brian F. Thomas provides a comprehensive discussion that emphasizes the potential threat to society, presents the ongoing challenges confronting the various laboratory approaches to detection and identification of new chemical entities and informs the development of improved analytical solutions for use in legislation, law enforcement and treatment.
