An anthracene molecular probe has been synthesised and shown to target mephedrone, a stimulant drug from the cathinone class of new psychoactive substances (NPS). A protocol has been developed to detect mephedrone via the probe using NMR spectroscopy in a simulated street sample containing two of the most common cutting agents, benzocaine and caffeine. © 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

A simple pyrene-based triazole receptor has been synthesised and shown to self-assemble in the presence of ZnCl 2 in an exclusively 2:1 ratio, whereas a mixture of 2:1 and 1:1 ratios are observed for other Zn 2+ salts. The pyrene units are syn in orientation; this is supported by a strong excimer signal observed at 410 nm in the presence of ZnCl 2 in acetonitrile. DFT calculations and 2D NMR support the proposed structure. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry. Source
