Team-sport athletes who normally reside at sea level occasionally play games at altitudes sufficient to impair endurance performance. To investigate the effect of intermittent normobaric hypoxic exposure on performance in generic and game-specific tests at altitude, 22 senior club level rugby players performed baseline tests before single-blind random(More)
The name `bath salts', for an emerging class of synthetic cathinones, is derived from an attempt to evade prosecution and law enforcement. These are truly illicit drugs that have psychoactive CNS (central nervous system) stimulant effects and they have seen a rise in abuse as recreational drugs in the last few years since first having been seen in Japan in(More)
The title compound, (1R,2R,3S,5S,8S)-3-hydr-oxy-8-methyl-8-azoniabicyclo-[3.2.1]octane-2-carboxylic acid chloride, C(9)H(16)NO(3) (+)·Cl(-), is both a metabolite and a precursor of the tropane alkaloid l-cocaine. The carboxyl group is not involved in dimerization, but instead donates a hydrogen bond to the chloride counter-ion, which participates in two(More)
The structure of the hydrated gold(III) tetrachloride salt of L-ecgonine {hydronium tetrakis[(1R,2R,3S,5S,8S)-3-hydroxy-8-methyl-8-azoniabicyclo[3.2.1]octane-2-carboxylate pentakis[tetrachloridoaurate(III)] hexahydrate}, (C(9)H(16)NO(3))(4)(H(3)O)[AuCl(4)](5).6H(2)O, demonstrates an unprecedented stoichiometric relationship between the cations and anions in(More)
The ortho-metallation product of the reaction of (±)-amphetamine with gold(III) chloride, [D,L-2-(2-aminopropyl)phenyl-κ(2)N,C(1)]dichloridogold(III), [Au(C9H12N)Cl2], and the two salts resulting from crystallization of (+)-methamphetamine with gold(III) chloride, D-methyl(1-phenylpropan-2-yl)azanium tetrachloridoaurate(III), (C10H16N)[AuCl4], and of(More)
α-Pyrrolidinovalerophenone (α-PVP), a dangerous designer drug, is now being marketed around the world as a harmless `bath salt', when in reality it is a powerful β-ketone phenethylamine stimulant. A sample of the free base from a recent law-enforcement seizure was crystallized as the HCl salt [systematic name: 1-(1-oxo-1-phenylpentan-2-yl)pyrrolidin-1-ium(More)
