Electroanalytical identification of 25I-NBOH and 2C-I via differential pulse voltammetry: a rapid and sensitive screening method to avoid misidentification
25I-NBOH is a new potent serotonin 5-HT2A receptor agonist recently identified in blotter paper seizures. This compound is a thermolabile molecule that undergoes degradation under routine gas chromatography–mass spectrometry analysis leading to misidentification. In this paper, the voltammetric behavior of 25I-NBOH and 2C-I was investigated and their electroanalytical characteristics were determined. A novel, fast and sensitive electrochemical method for the detection of 25I-NBOH using a SPCE is described and all method characteristics demonstrated the method to be analytically valuable. This method is selective and achieves full differentiation between 25I-NBOH, 2C-I and 25I-NBOMe.
