Based on the authors' several decades of professional experience, this unique data collection is tailor-made for criminal and forensic investigators. It contains 8,800 mass spectrum records obtained from 4,379 compounds categorized as either designer or medicinal drugs, chemical warfare agents or explosives. It even covers those substances yet to be recorded by the police, but which are likely to be encountered by crime prevention and investigation authorities, in both the areas of illicit drugs and homeland security. The perfect companion for users of the Roesner database, this print edition features a wealth of additional data not contained in the online version, such as U.S. and U. N. legal category information, chromatographic data and mass spectrum quality and similarity indices.

Since 1992 he has also been a lecturer for mass spectrometry at the University of Kiel. In 2005, Dr. Rosner received the Jean-Servais-Stas Award from the Society of Toxicological and Forensic Chemistry in honor of his outstanding work in forensic sciences. Thomas Junge (born 1959) studied Technical Chemistry at the University of Applied Science of Lubeck (Germany). Since 1985 he has been a specialist for daughter ion mass spectroscopy in the toxicology department at the Landeskriminalamt in Kiel. His contribution was essential in building a mass spectral daughter ion data base for the structure eludication of new designer drugs. Folker Westphal (born 1965) studied Chemistry at the Universities of Hannover and Kiel (Germany), and also holds a degree as Special Chemist for Toxicology from the University of Leipzig. From 1999 to 2004 he worked at the Institute of Legal Medicine in Kiel as forensic scientist.
