Abstract

The analysis of drugs of abuse is one of the fundamental activities carried out in any forensic chemical laboratory. A variety of analytical techniques are used, from simple presumptive testing to complex analytical instrumentation. The choice of analytical method is made based on the desired outcome: identification, quantification, or impurity analysis. This article briefly outlines the main analytical techniques used in the analysis of drugs of abuse.
