Abstract

Many testing kits for screening common drugs are widely used in Malaysia such as dip strip urine drug testing kit which is specified for detecting drug of abuser. However, currently there is no specific testing kit for screening urine samples to detect glue abusers has been found. This research is dedicated to develop a specific color test method emphasizing the screening for glue abusers, known as G.S. Kit. It contains benzenesulphonyl chloride, pyridine and distilled water. The urine sample is mixed with pyridine and benzenesulphonylchloride and followed by distilled water. A positive result will be in the form of a color reaction from yellow to red. This novel G.S. kit would be quite useful for the screening and detecting of glue sniffing and toluene abuser qualitatively as a way of helping National Anti Drug Agency, Department of Education and Royal Police of Malaysia in preventing glue sniffing from becoming a social pandemic.
