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)
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)
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)
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)
