A study was carried out to assess the possible interference of artificial sweeteners (Saccharin, sucralose, aspartame and cyclamate) while screening for drugs and pesticides in stomach content, urine and tissues by TLC for forensic toxicological purposes. Even though these sweeteners were extractable in acidic drugs extract and pesticide extract but they did not interfere in the analysis of drugs and pesticides. Therefore the screening methods usually used in forensic toxicological analysis for drugs and pesticides can be applied as such without any modification as the artificial sweeteners were not found to interfere.
