Forensic Applications of Mass Spectrometry combines the most current developments in applications of mass spectrometry techniques to forensic analyses. The techniques discussed include:

  • capillary-GC/MS

  • thermospray-LC/MS

  • tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS)

  • pyrolysis-GC/MS

  • isotope ratio mass spectrometry

    The applications include:

  • analysis of body fluids and hair for drugs of abuse

  • drug testing in sports

  • analysis of accelerants in fire debris

  • detection of hidden explosives in luggage and mail

  • identification of explosives in post-explosion debris

  • examination of evidential materials (paints, fibers, synthetic polymers)

  • authentication of regulated products (flavoring substances, fruit juices)

  • protection of industrial products by isotopic signature
