Testing/Identifying Opiates in Heroin

Hello all,

The man in my closet has been wondering recently about ways to identify which opaites are in your heroin. Recently there has been a potent strain of smack that the man in my closet has been getting. Thing is, it makes him sick often and he cannot even read a stop sign on it, things get very blurry. This makes him think its something more of the likes of morphine.

So, his question is, are there test one can buy to identify what opiate ones getting? Its understood that there are many, many opiates all derrived from one another. I know there are ways to test what drug your getting already, but is there one pertaining to opiates?

Thanks in advance.

I know this isn't helpful but it's stuff like this that make me really miss dropping out of studying chemistry at university and having access to a mass spectrometer.

Re: Testing/Identifying Opiates in Heroin

There are various reagents that can be used to test for opiates & opioids. From "Validation of twelve chemical spot tests for the detection of drugs of abuse" by Carol L. O’Neal , Dennis J. Crouch *, Alim A. Fatah


Quote:
mescaline.
Six of the CSTs are indicated for the detection of opioids and other amines. These include Mandelin (A.4), Marquis (A.5), nitric acid (A.6), ferric chloride (A.8), Froehde (A.9) and Mecke (A.10) reagents. Unlike the cobalt thiocyanate reaction, different colors were produced with different drugs making it easier to presumptively identify the specific drug present. For example, a selected battery of tests to identify heroin (diacetylmorphine) might include the Mandelin, Marquis and Froehde tests because they would produce reddish brown, deep purplish red and purplish red colors, respectively. Codeine, a second opiate, could be identified with the same battery of CSTs because it produced olive, dark purple and dark green colors, respectively. These three CSTs were reactive to many opioids with LODs as low as 1–5 mg, Table 4, but as mentioned the colors produced and the sensitivity was dependent on the many factors listed above.
The attached document will give you the results for heroin (diacety morphine), codeine, morphine, oxycodone, meperidine & propoxyphene, but it is quite an old document (thanks due to Radiometer iirc for originally sharing) - if anyone has more recent info regarding fentanyl & other opiate/oids please do post.

Short but thorough; you covered it.
