Description

Handbook on Analytical Techniques for Forensic Samples: Current and Emerging Developments discusses emerging trends, analytical techniques and methods commonly employed in forensic analysis. With increasing technological advancements, the use of novel technologies such as biosensors, nanotechnology and taggant technology have upped the level of analysis in forensic science. These emergent technologies, upon incorporation with existing analytical techniques, are leading to more precise, accurate and specific examination of forensic samples. Lab-on-a-chip technology has also eased several kinds of onsite analyses done by investigating teams at different crime scenes. This book covers the evolution of forensic sample analysis and emerging trends and technologies.

This book is useful for readers who wish to stay updated on the latest trends in the forensic analysis of different kinds of samples encountered at crime scenes.

Key Features

  • Includes an entire section of experimental exercises for self-teaching and key concept review
  • Covers laboratory protocols used in forensic science laboratories for the analysis of various samples through different analytical techniques
  • Condenses the many aspects of forensic analytical chemistry into a single resource with easy-to-understand language for everyone from students to practitioners

Readership

Students in analytical or forensic chemistry, researchers and research enterprises in the fields of forensic science and technology, including in engineering, environment, materials science, nanotechnology, energy, and green chemistry
