The Analysis of Drugs of Abuse Edited by Terry A. Gough, The Laboratory of the Government Chemist, Teddington, UK Analytical techniques based on separation processes, such as chromatography and electrophoresis, are finding a growing range of applications in chemical, biochemical and clinical laboratories: The aim of this series is to provide the analyst in these laboratories with well-focused books covering individual techniques and methods. This volume, devoted to the analysis of drugs which are commonly misused, provides a comprehensive source of up-to-date information. Detailed individual chapters are written by experts in the field describing various analytical techniques and applications. A special feature of the book is its emphasis on the complementary roles of chemist, law enforcer and the law maker in combatting drugs smuggling and the need for collaboration. This book will be a valuable reference for chemists, toxicologists and forensic scientists working in the field.
