Response to New Illegal Drugs May be Expedited by Data-Sharing WebsiteNews
Scientists have launched a website where forensic chemists can share data on new drug variants, also called drug analogs. The NPS Data Hub (NPS stands for Novel Psychoactive Substances) includes the chemical structures of drug analogs and their chemical signatures, which are the keys to identifying them in the lab.READ MORE
