The fourth issue of Analytical Methods is NOW online!

Take a look at our great new cover and discover all about the research behind it. Renato Zenobi and colleagues from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich introduce a new methodology for detection of party drugs, also called “date rape drugs” or “liquid ecstasy”. γ-Hydroxybutyrate (GBH) and γ-butyrolactone (GBL) are compounds that can be easily added to drinks . They cause catalepsy and memory loss and are completely tasteless and odourless. Thus it is not possible to determine whether a drink has been adultered or not. In this paper, electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry is situ is described as an efficient way to detect these drugs in drinks and body fluids.
