    Abstract

    Forensic analysis of skeletal muscle relaxants such as tubocurarine and gallamine has been hampered by the fact that these quaternary ammonium compounds are not readily extractable from the biological matrix. Several techniques have been presented to effect this extraction, but these appear to result in either erratic, incomplete extraction [1] or in nonselective extraction [2].
