Methoxyacetylfentanyl in two fatal poisonings - and identification of the in vivo main metabolites

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearch


Fentanyl analogues are causing intoxications worldwide. Due to their ability to create effects similar to opioids, these Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) have grown in popularity. Methoxyacetylfentanyl is a new illegal substance on the drug scene, as the first report of this drug appeared in December 2016 [EMCDDA]. In two fatal poisonings from Denmark, methoxyacetylfentanyl was identified and quantified in postmortem samples, further the main in vivo metabolites were tentatively identified.
