    Abstract

    N-formyl cocaine has been found to be a processing impurity (via potassium permanganate oxidation) in clandestine cocaine processing. Chemical isolation and spectroscopic data are presented. Its occurrence in illicit cocaine samples is examined for its value in sample comparisons. A general discussion of clandestine cocaine processing and permanganate oxidation is included.
