Description

Analysis Note Also known as a-PVP or O-2387, a-Pyrrolidinovalerophenone is a derivative of the synthetic cathinones MDPV and pyrovalerone. This illicit drug has stiµLant properties and has been found along with MDPV in several bath salt blends across the US, Europe, and Australia. Astec CHIROBIOTIC V2, based on vancomycin CSP, provided resolution of the enatiomers. CRMs from Cerillliant provided reliable identification and quantification.
