Book Review


These three volumes of gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectral (MS) data are an essential reference work for any professional working in the fields of clinical & forensic toxicology or analytical toxicology. The organization of the vast quantity of information facilitates the identification of unknowns by mass spectra, Kovats retention index, molecular weight, or even by compound class. The authors are to be congratulated for their attention to detail and their understanding of how to best use GC-MS data for the identification of drugs, poisons, and their metabolites. Whether a novice or experienced professional, those in the clinical & forensic toxicology or analytical toxicology fields will find these volumes essential additions to their library.
