Applications of LC-MS in Toxicology
Edited by Aldo Polettini - Dept of Legal Medicine and Public Health, University of Pavia
Applications of LC-MS in Toxicology gives practical hands-on information on applications of LC-MS on different groups of drugs and poisons, and in different contexts.
This book covers all essential theoretical aspects of liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry including:
- technical details of the instrumentation
- method development
- optimisation and validation
Further chapters cover in detail the application of LC-MS in areas such as
- systematic toxicological analysis
- drugs of abuse
- therapeutic drug monitoring
- doping in sport
- further potential forensic applications.
Following the developments of LC-MS in the last decade and its establishment as the method of choice in the pharmaceutical industry, the technique is increasingly being used in other scientific disciplines, including analytical toxicology.
This authoritative text is essential reading for all forensic and clinical toxicologists and will also be useful to pharmaceutical analysis as well as analytical chemists.
