Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs 2023

Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs 2023


Developed to Help Combat the Global Opioid Health Epidemic

Designer drugs are constantly evolving, and in order to keep up, you need access to the most recent spectral data. Updated annually, Mass Spectra of Designer Drugs is the most comprehensive MS collection of designer drugs, pharmaceuticals, chemical warfare agents and related substances. That's why forensic, clinical, and toxicological laboratories throughout the globe rely on this comprehensive high-quality spectral database to identify illicit substances fast. The database contains 34,209 mass spectra of 26,195 unique chemical compounds with detailed information and chemical structures for each entry. It includes data from both legal and underground literature, providing the most comprehensive picture of these compounds. This trusted resource is carefully compiled in cooperation with regional departments of criminal investigation and other partners worldwide. As far as possible, spectra were verified by standard mass spectral libraries and checked by mass spectral interpretations.

What's New in the 2023 Release?

The 2023 release features the addition of over 1,300 new mass spectra and over 800 new, unique compounds in classification groups like fentanyls, various opioids, synthetic cannabinoids, and many more. Updated annually, this release covers substances up to December 31, 2022.

Applications for this MS Library

This database is a critical and essential resource for analytical chemists in forensic, clinical, and toxicological laboratories who support law enforcement authorities with their services.

About the Author

Author Peter Rösner studied chemistry, pharmacology, and toxicology at the University of Kiel. In 1982, he joined the regional department of criminal investigation in Kiel and became the leader of the toxicology department, focusing on drug identification and structure elucidation with GC/MS. Since 1992, he has been a lecturer in mass spectrometry at the University of Kiel. Dr. Rösner received the Jean-Servais-Stas Award from the Society of Toxicological and Forensic Chemistry on April 15, 2005 in honor of his outstanding work on daughter ion mass spectroscopy and mass spectral databases.
