Title: Method for detecting organophosphorus compounds and illicit drugs

Abstract

A method is disclosed for detecting organophosphorus compounds and illicit drugs using an ion detector. A vapor sample containing at least one analyte and at least one dopant is ionized. A proton-bound adduct ion is formed between the analyte and the dopant in a reaction region defined between the ionization source and the ion detector.
