Spectroscopic Sensing of Opioids in the THz Region
We present a study of the THz electromagnetic signatures of a few opioid drugs by computer modeling and experiments. Oxycodone and Vicodin display vibrational absorption resonances between ~1.4 and 1.6 THz. Molecular dynamics simulations predict that fentanyl should also display THz resonances with several of them occurring below 1.0 THz.
