The Isolation and Identification of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) from Sugar Cubes and a Liquid Substrate
This report describes a simplified extraction technique for the analysis of LSD by GC/MS. The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Forensic Laboratory recently received two suspected LSD cases involving four sugar cubes and seven food coloring bottles each containing a liquid substance. Following the extraction described in this report, both cases were subsequently confirmed by GC/MS and quantitated by HPLC.
