3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and other amphetamine derivatives

J Forensic Sci. 1988 Mar;33(2):576-87.

Abstract

As various substances of abuse come under Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Schedule restrictions, slightly modified derivatives (designer drugs) replace them. A series of amphetamine derivatives are discussed in this presentation. Applicable analytical methods are presented. Details of cases handled by the office (hospital patients, driving while under the influence/driving under the influence of drugs [DWI/DUID], and medical examiner cases) are discussed.
