In 2019 more than 73,000 Americans died from illicit drug overdoses.  According to the National Institutes of Health “Synthetic opioids, including fentanyl, are now the most common drugs involved in drug overdose deaths in the United States. In 2017, 59. percent of opioid-related deaths involved fentanyl compared to 14.3 percent in 2010.”  May of these involve cocaine and heroin that have been spiked with small amounts of fentanyl - the users are not aware that they are using it.  Because of this, recently there has been increased interest in a “street-level” analytical methodology to screen drugs for adulteration.
 
In this months featured article, Ling Wang, Mario O. Vendrell-Dones, Chiara Deriu, Sevde Doğruer, Peter de B. Harrington, Bruce McCord from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Florida International University(LW, MVD, CD, SD BC) and Miami, FL USADepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Ohio University, Athens, OH (PH) describe the application of Surface-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) as a useful alternative to current screening procedures that permits detection of trace levels of fentanyl in mixtures.  The authors demonstrate that multivariate methods, combined with SERS, allows the determination of fentanyl as low as 0.05% in simulated seized heroin and 0.10% in simulated seized cocaine samples.

Welcome

Did you know?

In 1954 a number of spectroscopists, recognizing the existence of several regional societies of spectroscopists, organized a committee to promote a stronger exchange of information among these societies.  The efforts of this committee resulted in the formation of the Federation of Spectroscopic Societies on March 1, 1956 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
