Marquis reagent is used as a simple spot-test to presumptively identify alkaloids as well as other compounds.
The test is performed by scraping off a small amount of the substance and adding a drop of the reagent (which is initially clear and colorless). The results are analyzed by viewing the color of the resulting mixture, and by the time taken for the change in color to become apparent.
Simon’s reagent is used as a simple spot-test to presumptively identify alkaloids as well as other compounds. It reacts with secondary amines like MDMA and methamphetamine to give a blue solution.
Robadope reagent can be used for detecting primary amines (MDA, dex-Amphetamine, DOB, 2C-B and PMA).
