    Abstract

    The identification of illicit drugs presents many problems to the forensic laboratory because there is a broad range of possibilities which must be considered in order for a chemist to arrive at a definite identification. Obviously, this is a task that requires a constant search for new analytical techniques to meet such demands. Furthermore, these new techniques must not only facilitate the testing procedure but must provide the necessary confidence in their results as required by our court system.
