The analysis and identification of steroids Abstract In October 1987, anabolic steroids were controlled under Schedule IV of Florida State Statute 893. This study was designed to establish a method of analysis and identification of evidentiary cases. Spot tests, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy (GC/MS), Fourier transform nuclear magnetic resonance (FT-NMR), thin-layer chromatography (TLC), and extractions were performed on standard and pharmaceutical steroids. Mandelin's accompanied by the sulfuric acid test was found to provide the best indication of a steroid among the following four spot tests performed: sulfuric acid, napthol-sulfuric acid, Liebermann's, and Mandelin's. TLC was successfully performed on the steroid samples using two different eluent systems: TP and TQ. GC/MS was a very useful method of analysis applicable to most steroids, with only a few exceptions. FT-IR spectra were found to match the spectra from the literature for all the standards tested. The combination of the above techniques was used successfully to identify all the standards tested. Spots Tests Four spot tests were performed . 1. Sulfuric acid (concentrated). 2. Napthol sulfuric acid--1 g of 2-naphthol was dissolved in 40 mL of concentrated sulfuric acid by heating in water bath at 100~ and stirring. 3. Liebermann's--5 g of sodium nitrite were dissolved in 50 mL of concentrated sulfuric acid while cooling and swirling. 4. Mandelin's--0.5 g of ammonium vanadate was dissolved in 1.5 mL of water and diluted to 100 mL with concentrated sulfuric acid. The solution was then filtered through glass wool. Thin-layer Chromatography Four different eluent systems were recommended for So now you can simple Google the previously mentioned chemicals or look them up in Ebay. I recommend you get the reagents pre-made unless you intend to be the next Labmax competitor And yes, I think a single use yet ALL-steroid capable test kit containing all 4 reagents can be sold for about $20 If interested in this as a nice, yet legal business opportunity, I'll be glad to help so feel free to PM me. You can now buy an UV lamp. Some bill counterfeit detection lamps are cheap, widely available and reliable. I'm pretty sure Roid-Test uses these chemicals as evidenced by Dbol turning red and Halo Yellow under sulfuric acid Oils and pills raws Raws And labmax too In Ebay you can easily buy then on Ebay for about $50 and they last for many tests.
