Forensic Chemistry

Forensic Chemistry in its broadest sense is the application of techniques and principles of science for the purpose of administration of criminal justice system. Chemistry is an integral part of forensic science. Forensic scientists must understand the principles, concepts and techniques of chemistry perform their duties in an effective manner. Scientists of all types are often interested in the composition of a substance. However, the type of substance may vary according to their nature of work. Like, pharmaceutical scientists identify the substances in a drug sample to set their expiry dates. Similarly forensic scientists identify substance to connect suspects to crimes or to reconstruct a crime i.e. to determine how a crime has been committed.

Forensic chemists perform different analyses to identify materials in order to determine the nature and composition of such evidence. A highly trained forensic chemist is capable of determining the composition and nature of materials and predicting the source as well as matching evidences collected from the crime scene with the control sample. Modern chemistry employs the traditional analytical techniques hand in hand with much younger methods of analysis.

A vast range of analytical techniques are generally employed in forensic analyses. This includes ultraviolet, visible and infrared, spectrophotometry; GCMS; high pressure liquid chromatography; neutron activation analysis; and atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The choice of technique and instrument to be used depends on the type of sample to be analysed.
