Analysis of Synthetic Opiates and Novel Analgesics in Urine using SPE and HPLCMS/MS


Presented is a rapid, three step SPE procedure for the identification and quantification of fentanyl and its major urinary metabolite norfentanyl,  in addition to four “designer” compounds: U-47700, W-18, W-15 and furanyl fentanyl. Due to the rapid use and abuse of fentanyl in medical and recreational settings, respectively, it is important to develop a method that would accurately extract this Schedule II drug from any other novel compounds that may be present.
