High-performance liquid chromatography systems for the analysis of analgesic and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in forensic toxicology

J Chromatogr. 1986 Nov 26;370(1):39-47. doi: 10.1016/s0021-9673(00)94672-7.


High-performance liquid chromatography retention data are presented for over 40 analgesic drugs on an ODS-silica packing material to assist in the identification of these compounds. Three isocratic eluents prepared from isopropanol, formic acid and an aqueous phosphate buffer have been used. One eluent has been used for the analysis of paracetamol in whole blood.
