Abstract

A set of seized "legal high'' samples and pure novel psychoactive substances have been examined by surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy using polymer-stabilized Ag nanoparticle (Poly-SERS) films. The films both quenched fluorescence in bulk samples and allowed identification of mu g quantities of drugs collected with wet swabs from contaminated surfaces.
