Abstract

This paper illustrates some preliminary investigations into using ICP-MS in combination with ET-AAS in the analysis of Ecstasy tablets. Results indicate that a combination of both techniques can show discriminating power between seizures. Descriptions of the modifications made to optimise the ET-AAS system are described.
