Abstract:

The analysis of synthetic cannabinoids and their metabolites can be a difficult and challenging task. Keeping up with the ever-growing list of synthetic cannabinoids that illicit drugmakers produce further complicates the analysis. As shown here, the retention and selectivity of the Raptor Biphenyl column allow new drugs to be added to an existing method, providing labs with an important vehicle for improving efficiency and productivity.
