CSI funding, matched by the Government, has enable eight Teesside University students to undertake invaluable laboratory experience investigating parameters for the extraction of illicit drugs from wastewater under the supervision of Dr Gillian Taylor and Northumbria Water. Solid phase extraction techniques have been optimised towards cocaine and cocaine metabolites from wastewater and then detection using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry. Students have gained knowledge of changing chemical parameters to increase SPE efficiency, investigated factors towards optimum chromatographic conditions and more importantly gained confidence in laboratory skills which are essential for future employment.
