The new edition of this famous collection:
* triples the number of spectra
* now includes pesticides and pollutants
* also allows identification of doping agents
* offers nearly complete coverage of centrally active drugs, designer drugs, registered pesticides, pollutants, organic solvents
All the spectra were obtained in the authors' laboratory using GC-MS coupling techniques.
As the subtitle (in its new wording) suggests, the collection now reaches far beyond the needs of clinical toxicologists and pharmacologists. Above all, the inclusion of pesticides and pollutants makes this data collection invaluable for environmental chemists, occupational toxicologists and food analysts as well.
Unmatched in scope, quality and reliability, this collection is the result of a unique effort. It is indispensable for laboratories in this field all over the world.

K. Pfleger, H. H. Maurer, A. Weber Mass Spectral and GC Data of Drugs, Poisons, Pesticides, Pollutants and Their Metabolites Part 3 Second, revised and enlarged edition Unmatched in scope, quality and reliability, this collection is the result of a unique effort. The new edition of this famous reference work: ? triples the number of spectra (4370 entries) ? now includes pesticides and pollutants ? allows identification of doping agents ? offers nearly complete coverage for centrally active drugs, designer drugs, registered pesticides, pollutants, organic solvents The collection now reaches far beyond the needs of clinical and forensic toxicologists. Above all, the inclusion of pesticides and pollutants makes this data collection invaluable for environmental chemists, occupational toxicologists and food analysts, also. From reviews of the first edition: This book is extremely important for all those using gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) for substance detection and identification in clinical and forensic toxicology ? The work is unique ? it provides a monumental reference work that should be available in every laboratory using GC-MS in clinical and forensic toxicology ? to the experienced worker, this book will be invaluable. The authors are to be congratulated not only for their tremendous amount of work, but also for offering their vast experience to their colleagues in the field in an outstanding way. Rokus A. de Zeeuw Journal of Chromatography There can be no doubt of the great value of this reference collection. It provides, for the first time, a comprehensive set of retention indices and mass spectra organized to allow a rapid search for and identification of biologically active compounds. The presentation is of a high quality, and the reproduction of the spectra is very clear. All reputable toxicological laboratories should have access to this collection, and it should quickly earn its keep. Alan Townshend Analytica Chimica ActaAbout the Author:
Karl Pfleger was appointed head of the Department of Toxicology at the Saarland University in Homburg/Saar, Germany, in 1967. In the late 1970s he developed, together with his PhD student Hans H. Maurer, novel analysis procedures for identification and Quantification of drugs, poisons and their metabolites in body samples. they introduced mass spectrometry as the gold standard into clinical and forensic toxicology. In 1985, they published the first edition of their unique handbook of GC and MS data together with Armin A. Weber (left), who was and is responsible for all technical and software developments, including the mass spectral database that was developed from the printed collection. In 1987, Karl Pfleger received the Jean-Servais Stas Medal of the Gesellschaft fur Toxikologische und Forensische Chemie (GTFCh). In 1992, Karl Pfleger retired and Hans H. Maurer became his successor as professor and head of the department. His main areas of research are analytical toxicology (GC-MS, LC-MS) and metabolism of xenobiotics. He has published over 130 original papers and 20 invited reviews. He has received several scientific awards, including the Young Investigator Award of the Homburg Medical Faculty in 1983, the Irving Sunshine Award for Outstanding Contributions to Clinical Toxicology of the International Association of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Clinical Toxicology (IATDMCT) in 1997, the Alan Curry Lifetime Achievement Award of The International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT) for Outstanding Contributions to Forensic Toxicology in 2003, and the Doctor Honoris causa title of the University of Ghent in 2007. He is the current President of IATDMCT (since 2007), Councillor of TIAFT (since 2005) and treasurer of GTFCh (since 1987).
