Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs 2014 Edition Released

John Wiley & Sons , Inc. have released “Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs 2014” edited by Peter Rösner (ISBN: 978-3-527-33795-8).
Compounds classified as “Designer Drugs” have been synthesized for several decades. This is not a precise scientific term and should only be applied to those drugs that are synthesized from common chemicals and skillfully marketed under attractive, often exotic names.
Because of many designer drugs are novel or designed to evade detection, they can be overlooked or difficult to detect or characterize. The last decade has seen a proliferation of such substances, such that keeping abreast of this huge number of new drugs is a difficult task for forensic chemists and toxicologists. Compiled by a team originating from the Regional Departments of Criminal Investigation in Kiel, Hamburg, and Wiesbaden, Germany, Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs has been developed to help forensics and toxicology labs combat this epidemic.
Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs 2014 covers the entire range of designer drugs up to
December 2013. Approximately 70% of the compounds covered in the Designer Drugs do not appear in either NIST 2011 or the Wiley Registry of Mass Spectral Data, 9th Edition.
