As the number of forensic science and forensic chemistry degree programs increases, Forensic Chemistry is the first text to specifically address this rapidly growing field. It 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.- The first forensics-only textbook - Addresses instructors' needs for a single, timely text that specifically addresses the field of forensic chemistry, and serves as a reference in the classroom and beyond.- Solid foundation for basic chemistry - Introduces chemical concepts and practices from a forensic perspective, including multivariate statistics, quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC), and protocols used in working forensic laboratories.
