New Psychoactive Substance (NPS) trends 2016

New psychoactive substances (NPS) continue to be a hot topic. Although the United Nations and many individual countries control named NPS, suppliers often develop new versions immediately after a previous form has been banned to avoid these controls.

Strategies used to develop new materials include creating modified versions of pharmaceuticals, ‘reviving’ forgotten pharmaceuticals from old research literature and making ‘bioisosteres’ of controlled materials, where sub-units within a controlled molecule are replaced by other units with similar chemical, spatial and electrical characteristics.

In order to help you detect and analyse these new substances,, we have created a new report on ‘New psychoactive substances trends’ including analytical reference materials.
