Summary

Recent developments in analytical instrumentation have had an enormous influence on forensic analysis. The mass spectrometer is now an integral part of every forensic laboratory, resulting in greater analytical accuracy, more reliable identification, and lower detection limits. As the instrumental method of choice among forensic analysts, the mass spectrometer continues to pave the way for innovative applications in forensic analysis.

Exploring the latest developments in the field, Advances in Forensic Applications of Mass Spectrometry provides a comprehensive reference guide to forensic applications using modern mass spectrometry techniques. The book features methods developed from advanced instrumentation, drug detection and toxicological analysis, and methodology of applications of stable isotope ratios. The final chapters present approaches for identifying accelerants in fire debris and procedures for analyzing explosives in post-blast residues.

Jehuda Yinon, Ph.D., is one of the top forensic chemists in the world. As the editor of this authoritative volume, he compiles the knowledge of leading experts to demonstrate the use of novel mass spectrometry techniques in a vast range of forensic applications.
