Miller et al.  found that concentrations of cocaine and its derivatives were higher in hair than in nail, whereas Cirimele et al.  found that the concentrations of amphetamines and its metabolites were similar in both tissues. Analysis of nail clippings from the newborn by gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy can provide evidence of exposure to cocaine during embryogenesis. Given the point of nail formation, it is likely that the levels will reflect exposure after the 14th week .
8 × 103 cm/h . This demonstrates that the hydrated nail is more permeable to water than to alcohol and behaves like a hydrogel of high ionic strength to polar and semipolar alcohols. Looking at nail permeability in states of different relative humidity demonstrates that diffusivity of nail increases logarithmically, with an overall increase of 400 times from dryness to complete hydration . Combining alcohols with water may increase the permeation by the alcohol. The addition of N-acetylL-cysteine or mercaptoethanol to an aqueous solvent has been found to enhance the penetration of nail samples by the antifungal tolnaftate .
