Chemistry of Forensic evidences:
Polymers, Fibers, Paint, Documents, Soil, Explosives, Firearms, Arson, Body Fluids, Drugs and Toxicology, and fingerprints.
Chemical tests, Density and Light examination.
Optical Microscopy, introduction, interpretation of Fibers, paint, drugs and documents.
Infrared and Raman spectroscopy, introduction, interpretation of paint, polymers, documents, explosives and drugs.
Atomic spectrometry, introduction, interpretation of glass, gunshot residue and Toxicology.
This course approaches the methods and analyses of forensic science from a chemical perspective. Topics include different analytical techniques to interpret drug, questioned document, glass, paint and gunshot residue samples.
