    Abstract

    The examination of illicit heroin by the forensic scientist will often entail the identification of adulterants and excipients for intelligence purposes. Fulton [1] in an earlier study of adulterant and diluent content of contraband heroin, found quinine, mannitol, and lactose to be the most common diluents. Knowledge of the various diluents used to cut heroin may provide clues that will enable law enforcement agencies to correlate heroin traffic in diverse metropolitan and geographical areas.
