Abstract
Application of different solvents (acetone, chloroform, methanol and n-hexane) for the extraction of target compounds, i.e. new psychoactive compounds from herbal material and subsequent infrared ATR (Attenuated Total Reflectance)spectroscopic analysis of evaporative residues of extracts were studied. The acetone could be stated to be the most suitable solvent, because it has good selectivity and dissolving power for the target compounds being present in the given matrices and can easily be evaporated from the surface of the ATR diamond, assuring a simple and fast sample preparation.
The applicability of the elaborated procedure is demonstrated via analysis of real samples and has been found useful for the analysis of herbal mixtures containing AKB48, AB-PINACA, AB-FUBINACA, PB-22, AB-CHMINACA, 5F-PB-22, AM-2201.

Key words: Keywords: forensic sciences, forensic chemistry, analytical chemistry, spectroscopy, FT-IR, ATR, DRIFT, synthetic cannabinoids, cannabimimetics, spice
