Date rape drug sensor

27 06 2013

New Drug Approvals

 
gamma-butyrolactone

The first fluorescent sensor for known date rape drug gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) has been developed in Singapore. It emits orange fluorescence in alcoholic drinks containing GBL when irradiated with a green laser.

Gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) is a readily available industrial solvent that is often used as a date rape drug. There are several detection kits that can show if a drink has been spiked with drugs like gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and ketamine but there are no commercially available sensors to detect GBL.

Fernando Patolsky and Michael Ioffe of Tel Aviv University developed a sensor that, when dipped into a drink, will instantly detect the presence of a drug such as GHB, ketamine, or Rohypnol.

Catalytic routes for conversion of microalgae oil to green hydrocarbons.

Catalytic deoxygenation of microalgae oil to green hydrocarbons

Microalgae are high potential raw biomass material for triglyceride feedstock, due to their high oil content and rapid growth rate, and because algae cultivation does not compete with edible food on arable land. This review addresses first the microalgae cultivation with an overview of the productivity and growth of microalgae, the recovery of lipids from the microalgae, and chemical compositions of microalgae biomass and microalgal oil. Second, three basic approaches are discussed…
