Multilingual Dictionary of Precursors and Chemicals Frequently Used in the Illicit Manufacture of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances under International Control

Abstract

Similar to controlled Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances, Precursors and Chemicals appear under a wide variety of names. This complicates the task of national and international drug control authorities.  UNODC has responded to this problem by developing a Multilingual Dictionary of Precursors and Chemicals Frequently Used in the Illicit Manufacture of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances under International Control, covering all Precursors and Chemicals used in the illicit manufacture of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances under international control with information on chemical names and variants, synonyms and trade names.

This new dictionary, published by the Laboratory and Scientific Section, Division of Policy Analysis, completes UNODC's set of international drug dictionaries which also includes the Multilingual Dictionary of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances under International Control (MLD, ST/NAR/1), and provides accurate and comprehensive information on the chemical names of the 23 Precursors and Chemicals under international control, listed in the Tables of the 1988 Convention. It is structured in four parts:

Part One: Individual monographs on all 23 Precursors and Chemicals under International Control

Part Two: Alphabetical cross-index of all names and synonyms included in the monographs

Part Three: Bilingual lists of all listed substances and common salts in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish, each translated from and to English

Part Four:Information on the international regime of control, listing history and control status of the precursors and chemicals under international control
