We present the case of a 17-year-old man, who died after 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP) and clenbuterol consumption, which he likely took for physical enhancement. Forensic post-mortem examination revealed a yellowish skin colour and nonspecific signs of asphyxia. Analytical confirmation of the intoxication was obtained in blood and urine, with high levels of DNP and clenbuterol. Read More

Clenbuterol (CL), salbutamol (SAL) and ractopamine (RAC) are the three common β-adrenergic agonists, which are the main hazards in food safety and affect human health through the food chain. A convenient and efficient method is urgently required to perform on-site detection of multiple β-adrenergic agonists to avoid frequent poisoning incidents. In this paper, a 2-directional lateral flow strip technique (2-directional LFS) is developed for rapid and simultaneous detection of CL, SAL and RAC with single sampling. Read More

β-Agonists are illegally consumed in various products such as food and animal and effect the nutrition distribution owing to change of body fat. In addition, they result in acute poisoning and several symptoms such as muscular tremors and nervousness. A new electrochemical approach based on two-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride (2D-hBN) nanosheets decorated functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (f-MWCNTs) was presented for simultaneous determination of β-agonists such as phenylethanolamine A (PEA), clenbuterol (CLE), ractopamine (RAC) and salbutamol (SAL) in urine samples.
