The few times I used a GC/MS, there was a database in the software listing possible molecules from the signal given, if I remember correctly, but that's like 15 years ago. The reference sample could be used to check the time spent in the chromatography column, or directly compare the signals fom the MS. But, with no reference sample, you at least need some archive in the software about the signal in the MS of the molecule you're looking for.They told me they didn't have any reference data for 4C-D in any library which is why, but like I said I thought GC/MS didn't need a reference sample.
I think it is, and the lack of a reference for 4C-D plus the lack of a match is evidence that it COULD be. I have no reason to doubt it, but there is by no means proof at this point.So more than likely the batch going around is real?
Actually if anyone remembers that post that someone made about an affordable melting point tester, can they link to that or PM me? I can't seem to find the post and when I searched for "melting point tester" on amazon I was getting $1,000+ lab equipment.
