This should include weight, colour, odour and any other physical characteristic that the scientist considers to be important. Depending upon the number of items in the group, the following sampling strategy, based upon the United Nations Drug Control Programme (UNDCP) recommendations, may be adopted. If there are between 1 and 10 items, all of them should be examined.

1) The Rf values of the unknowns are compared to those of the standards and if the data cannot be discriminated then a suggested match is called. Although when using this combination of presumptive tests and TLC it is possible to discriminate within this group of compounds, due to the extremely large number of amphetamines available, it is necessary to carry out a conﬁrmatory analytical technique. The foremost of these, for amphetamine identiﬁcation, is gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS).
When setting this method into operation, the HPLC column should be allowed sufﬁcient time to equilibrate with the mobile phase – typically 30–60 min. 9 Why is this long equilibration time required? The calibration standards should be analysed from the weakest to the strongest, with blanks between samples to demonstrate that there has been no ‘carry-over’ between injections. The samples can then be analysed, with ‘check standards’ analysed between every 4th or 5th sample. 10 Why should the calibration curve be prepared from the weakest sample to the strongest?
