Compounds classified as Designer Drugs have been synthesized since the early 1980s. This is not a precise scientific term and should only be applied to those drugs that are synthesized from common chemicals and skillfully marketed under attractive, often exotic names. The last decade has seen a proliferation of such substances, such that keeping abreast of this huge number of new drugs is a difficult task for forensic chemists and toxicologists. The Designer Drugs 2011 cover the entire range of designer drugs up to December 2010. Carefully compiled by the mass spectral experts at the Regional Departments of Criminal Investigation in Kiel, Hamburg, and Wiesbaden, Germany, this database includes: - over 12,000 chemical compounds - over 14,000 mass spectra, about 1,700 more spectra than in the 2010 edition - Chemical structures - Chemical warfare agents, added due to the interest in homeland security - Data taken from both legal and underground literature, providing the most comprehensive picture of these compounds - Average peaks per spectrum: 161 - Average Quality Index: 938 - Experimental Kovats indices: over 6,000 - Calculated Kovats indices - Added as separate data collection: more than 10,000 ESI LC-MS/MS spectra of 750 compounds. The MS/MS data are a valuable and complementary supplement to the EI GC/MS collection. The MS/MS data have been acquired under standardized conditions and are fully searchable. Compound classes: amphetamines: 904 methylenedioxyphenethylamines: 514 phenethylamines: 1032 tryptamines: 243 piperazines: 356 opiates: 146 fentanyles: 240 cathinones: 98 phencyclidines: 14 barbiturates: 56 arylpropan-2-amines: 102 arylbutan-2-amines: 386 1-aryl-2-nitro-ethenes: 41 1-aryl-2-nitroprop-1-enes: 64 1-aryl-2-nitrobut-1-ene: 45 benzaldehydes: 144 benzodiazepines: 218 designer drug isomers: 375 derivatives: 3258 metabolites incl. derivatives: 2366 chemical warfare agents: 67 designer drug precursors: 588 pharmaceutical drugs incl. metabolites: 3132 pesticides: 166 explosives: 24 controlled compounds: 1043 Available Database Formats: ACD; Agilent Chemstation; NIST MSSEARCH; Finnigan GCQ, SSQ, TSQ, ICIS, INCOS, Iontrap, ITS40, Magnum; INCOS; PE Turbomass; Shimadzu QP-5000; Thermo Galactic SpectralID; Varian Saturn;VG Labbase, Masslab; Waters Masslynx; Xcalibur
Peter R?sner (born 1944) studied Chemistry at the University of Kiel (Germany). In 1981 he became head of the toxicology department at the state agency of criminal investigation (Landeskriminalamt) in Kiel, where he focuses on drug identification and structure elucidation with GC/MS methods. Since 1992 he has also been a lecturer for mass spectrometry at the University of Kiel. In 2005, Dr. R?sner received the Jean-Servais-Stas Award from the Society of Toxicological and Forensic Chemistry in honor of his outstanding work in forensic sciences. Thomas Junge (born 1959) studied Technical Chemistry at the University of Applied Science of L?beck (Germany). Since 1985 he has been a specialist for daughter ion mass spectroscopy in the toxicology department at the Landeskriminalamt in Kiel. His contribution was essential in building a mass spectral daughter ion data base for the structure eludication of new designer drugs. Folker Westphal (born 1965) studied Chemistry at the Universities of Hannover and Kiel (Germany), and also holds a degree as Special Chemist for Toxicology from the University of Leipzig. From 1999 to 2004 he worked at the Institute of Legal Medicine in Kiel as forensic scientist. Since 2004 he is leader of the section "Analysis of Drugs of Abuse and Forensic Toxicology" at the Landeskriminalamt in Kiel. Giselher Fritschi (born 1944) studied Chemistry at the Universities of Mainz and Karlsruhe (Germany). After a postdoc year at the University of Marburg he joined the Bundesgesundheitsamt (Federal Health Office) in Frankfurt. In 1978 he changed to the Landeskriminalamt in Wiesbaden as forensic expert for toxicological analysis, focusing on the structure elucidation of new designer drugs.
