  Annotation: This report details a National Institute of Justice, grant funded project designed to research capillary electrophoretic analysis of clandestine methamphetamine laboratory evidence.
Abstract: The three primary goals of this project were: 1) develop capillary electrophoresis methods that can be used to assist in the identification of inorganic chemical species from various methamphetamine manufacturing methods; 2) develop a better understanding of methamphetamine manufacturing methods and the chemistry of popular and emerging reactions, so as to improve the evaluation of samples collected from illicit manufacturing facilities; and 3) provide training to forensic chemistry analysts, clandestine laboratory crime scene responders, and user agencies on what to look for when handling laboratories associated with popular and newly emerging methamphetamine manufacturing trends. The report details the ways in which the specific goals were accomplished.
