    Abstract

    Forensic chemists are constantly evaluating various techniques for the identification and isolation of large classes of drugs of similar chemical structure. Because of increased abuse, of particular interest are the amphetamine derivatives and morpholine-related drugs either clandestinely synthesized or manufactured in licit form. The twelve drugs studied in this paper, some of which have been recently controlled by law as dangerous substances, are routinely encountered in crime laboratories; thus, the chromatographic separation and identification of these substances is important to practicing forensic drug chemists.
