Isotopic changes during the synthesis of amphetamines

Abstract

Observed variations in the δ13C and δ15N content of amphetamines are shown to be attributable to kinetic isotope effects during synthesis; chemical degradation and isotopic characterisation provides a means to identify the synthetic origins of illicit MDMA and other amphetamines.
