The first text to specifically address this growing field, Forensic Chemistry introduces the principal areas of study from the perspective of analytical chemistry–addressing the legal context in which forensic chemistry is conducted, types of samples and matrices, variety of sample types encountered, and extensive use of instrumentation. It provides a solid foundation for basic chemistry, introducing chemical concepts and practices from a forensic perspective (including multivariate statistics, quality assurance/quality control, and protocols used in working forensic laboratories). The Second Edition has been reorganized significantly, and updated to reflect new developments in the course.
