    Abstract

    Identification of abused drugs is a primary endeavor of any comprehensive drug program. Whiie Delaware State College's drug analysis program has long since established workable techniques for the primary screening of drugs in blood, saliva, and urine samples, we investigated rather novel areas, particularly the confirmation of drug identity in confiscated pills by instrumental analyses and the preparation and analysis of derivatives of these drugs. This investigation included these objectives: (1) preparation of reference spectra of some drugs (infrared, ultraviolet, and gas chromatography were most desirable for this purpose); (2) perfection of the procedures for producing convenient drug derivatives; (3) determination of the pill quantities required to proceed through preparation, extraction, purification, and analysis of detectable quantities of a drug or its derivatives; and (4) development of reasonable proposals for certain other drugs to be analyzed by the derivative procedures used.
