This study examines the pyrolysis products of smoked methamphetamine mixed with tobacco that was trapped with a C8 adsorbent cartridge and then detected by gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. According to the results, the mainstream smoke contains 2-methylpropyl-benzene, 2-chloropropyl-benzene, 2,3-dihydro-3,5-dihydroxy-6-methyl-4H-pyran-4-one,(More)
In this paper, we propose a new data mining technique that can address the temporal relation rules of temporal interval data by using Allen's theory. We present two new algorithms for discovering temporal relationships: one is to preprocess an algorithm for the generalization of temporal interval data and to transform timestamp data into temporal interval(More)
Saponins from black bean (Vigna mungo L. Hepper) were analyzed using positive and negative ion fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry (FAB-MS) and liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry. Methanol was used to extract the saponins from defatted black bean, which was partially purified by extraction with n-butanol, and the extract was dialyzed with 3000 M(r)(More)
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) coupled with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was used to determine pesticide residues in Chinese herbal formulations. Fibers coated with a 100-microm film thickness of poly(dimethylsiloxane) was used to extract 19 organochlorine pesticides (OCPs). The pesticides in the study consisted of alpha-, beta-,(More)
This study evaluates solid-phase microextraction (SPME) coupled with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to determine trace levels of amphetamine and methamphetamine in serum. Headspace post-derivatization in a laboratory-made design with heptafluorobutyric anhydride vapor following SPME was compared with that without derivatization SPME. The SPME(More)
This study analyzes acidic herbicides from an aqueous sample by developing a methylated postderivatization on the fiber following solid-phase microextration (SPME) with diazomethane gas procedure combined with GC/MS. Analysis results indicate that a silica fiber coated with polyacrylate (PA) yields a higher extraction efficiency than that obtained with(More)
