This book details all of the relevant information on the fragmentation of drugs and pesticides. It extends this information by the interpretation of series of mass spectra in available mass spectral library collections for liquid chromatography - tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS). The information provided indicates important fragmentation pathways in the various chemical compound classes. Whenever available or useful, fragmentation in both positive-ion and negative-ion mode is discussed and compared. This is important since no complete databases about the fragmentation of these substances are available, and the information on to interpreting unknown fragments is scattered. Thus, this book will provide important information on how to interpret spectra so that fragments can be correctly identified that are not contained in a database.
Important classes of compounds discussed include pesticides and related compounds as well as drugs for cardiovascular diseases and hypertension, psychotropic or psychoactive drugs, drugs related to digestion and the gastrointestinal tract, antimicrobial compounds, and other classes of drugs, such as steroids, drugs of abuse.
This two-volume encyclopedia provides accessibly written coverage on a wide range of topics, covering substances ranging from whiskey to peyote as well as related topics such as Mexican drug trafficking and societal effects caused by specific drugs. The entries also supply an excellent overview of the history of temperance movements in Canada and the United States; trends in alcohol consumption, its production, and its role in the economy; as well as alcohol's and drugs' roles in shaping national discourse, the creation of organizations for treatment and study, and legal responses.
This resource includes primary documents and a bibliography offering important books, articles, and Internet sources related to the topic.
Gender, drugs and street life explores the way girls and boys of white British origin access and participate in legal and illegal drugs, within the context of supply at the local level. It explores the relationship of children and young people to the local drug market from a gendered perspective, and illustrates how their drug behaviours should be understood in both localised and gendered terms.
The book draws on a two-year ethnographic study of children and young people growing up on 'Northside', a small housing estate located on the edge of a large Northern city in England. The book addresses the environment which these young people inhabit, and provides a critical examination of the popular image of the contemporary British housing estate by exploring the political economy of drug dealing and crime at the local level. It also undertakes a detailed exploration and discussion of the gendered nature of drug taking practices and rituals.
By re-engaging with ethnographies this book provides a rich, descriptive account of young people's drug taking practices and behaviours within the context of supply. It also unveils the gendered meaning and context of drug taking and drug selling.
