    Abstract

    [Truncated] A number of chemicals from clandestine amphetamine laboratories were seized in Perth, Western Australia. A common element to all of these laboratories was the chemicals and 'homemade' equipment used. Two of the chemicals recovered from the laboratories, ammonium carbonate and zinc, are not normally associated with amphetamine manufacture. Typed and hand written 'recipes' were also found at two of the laboratories. The research described here is concerned with an investigation of the possible synthetic routes employed in the manufacture of amphetamine.
