By Salvatore J. Salamone

Well-liked specialists clarify the pharmacology and metabolism of benzodiazepines (LDB) and g-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and supply strong and powerful methodologies that would permit higher detection of those medicines in numerous physique fluids, in addition to in hair. The concepts contain hugely delicate immunoassay detection of LDBs, the detection of Rohypnol® and different LDBs via mass spectrometry, and the ultrasensitive detection of GHB. cutting-edge and hugely functional, Benzodiazepines and GHB: Detection and Pharmacology deals toxicologists, forensic scientists, and scientific chemists ultra-modern most desirable tools for detecting those extensively abused medicines which are occasionally came upon linked to felony acts.
