    Abstract

    Samples from illicit preparations of amphetamine and methamphetamine have been analyzed by combined gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) to detect and identify contaminants, excipients, and by-products of manufacture. The samples were also analyzed by energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) and by X-ray diffraction.
