Book Description

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
