Mass Spectral and GC Data of Drugs, Poisons, Pesticides, Pollutants and Their Metabolites, 4th Edition (3527329927) cover image


The world's most comprehensive reference for forensic toxicologists is keeping pace with recent developments in clinical toxicology in its new release: Another 800 new spectra have been added to this gold standard, including novel designer drugs and a broad range of AIDS therapeutics, for a total of 8,650 clinically relevant substances, including 5,200 metabolites. The print edition contains a comprehensive listing of all compounds in order of molecular mass, showing a reference mass spectrum as well as structural formula, exact masse, GC retention times and numerous other experimental data that are relevant to the analytical toxicologist. To aid in compound identification, all substances are classified according to their toxicological categories.
In addition to the mass spectral and GC data for almost 9000 substances, the two volumes contain an overview on experimental methods, plus compound indices by name and substance category.
A truly unique collection of data obtained over the course of almost three decades.

Praise for the previous editions:

"An invaluable source of reference for any environmental, toxicological or analytical laboratory."
(Rapid Communications in MS)

"The excellent organization of the information facilitates their everyday use. Highly recommended."
(Environmental Science and Pollution Research)

"The modern toxicological laboratory can ill afford to be without this unique work."
(Veterinary Human Toxicology)

Author Information

Hans Maurer is the current, Karl Pfleger the former head of the Saarland University clinical toxicology laboratory at the university clinical campus in Homburg (Germany). Together with Armin Weber, they have developed a now world-famous toxicological database that contains clinical data from victims of poisons, drugs, pesticides and pollutants.
Professor Maurer is the recipient of the Alan Curry Award of The International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT) and the Past-President of the International Association of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Clinical Toxicology (IATDMCT).
