The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York

By Deborah Blum

***PBS's AMERICAN event published a movie according to The Poisoner's guide in January 2014***

Equal elements precise crime, twentieth-century historical past, and technology mystery, The Poisoner's Handbook is "a vicious, page-turning tale that reads extra like Raymond Chandler than Madame Curie" (The long island Observer)

A attention-grabbing Jazz Age story of chemistry and detection, poison and homicide, The Poisoner's Handbook is a page-turning account of a forgotten period. In early twentieth-century manhattan, poisons provided a simple route to the correct crime. technology had no position within the Tammany Hall-controlled coroner's place of work, and corruption ran rampant. notwithstanding, with the appointment of leader medical expert Charles Norris in 1918, the poison video game replaced without end. including toxicologist Alexander Gettler, the duo set the justice procedure on fireplace with their trailblazing clinical detective paintings, winning over probably unbeatable odds to turn into the pioneers of forensic chemistry and the gatekeepers of justice.

Love Drugs

By Otto Snow

Love medicines is a sequel to Amphetamine Syntheses (2002) multiplied assurance of the synthesis of MDMA and different empathogens and stimulants.

Expanding the chemistry of empathogens. MDMA from scratch. Small and massive scale creation is defined intimately. scorching new formulation abound. Piperonyl-acetone from either safrol and isosafrol. a number of aid tools utilizing universal and in the community to be had metals.

MDA seemed within the Nineteen Sixties and has been known as the unique love drug. It used to be the 1st in a sequence of molecules that produce empathy in people. MDMA used to be seemed sporadically within the Nineteen Seventies. MDEA ecstasy within the 1980s.

These molecules have been managed as they have been being abused. Substituted phenyl amino-butanes have decreased abuse strength and bigger protection margins. but, in twenty years, the improvement of more secure entactogens has no longer taken place.

Love medicinal drugs supplies the reader a glance on the such a lot leading edge chemistry for entactogen construction. particular descriptions on safrol, apiol, asarone, dimethoxyallybenzene, and so forth. extraction from a number of botanical assets. stories of traditional syntheses with counsel from the unique chemists.
