    Abstract

    The increase in illegal use of phenylethylamine-type drugs has produced concurrent investigations for facile analytical methods to detect and identify such drugs, particularly amphetamine and methamphetamine. Two of the most sensitive and rapid methods widely used are thin-layer and gas-liquid chromatography [1–7]. These methods have the main advantage of being able to separate different types of phenylethylamine compounds in a single preparation. They also have the disadvantages of lengthy preparation procedures for general screening purposes.
