Using MRM/Product Ion Scan Mode in GC-MS/MS to Perform Detection and Differentiation of Synthetic Cannabinoids
Forensic chemists face the challenge of identifying new psychoactive substances (NPS), whereby the general structures of controlled drugs are modified to evade legislative banning. Hence, a plethora of synthetic cathinones and cannabinoids has been available to the public, causing a global social problem. It is therefore crucial that analytical methods are developed for identifying and differentiating new analogues of synthetic drug substances, to prevent potential trading and abuse. Additionally, drug legislation is made more challenging with the use of synthetic cannabinoid containing products, typically marketed as “herbal mixtures”, which consists of analogues of synthetic cannabinoids. In this study, simultaneous multi-reaction monitoring (MRM) and product ion scan (PIS) acquisition methods have been developed for detection and differentiation of isomeric synthetic cannabinoids.
