Spectro Chemical Analysis in Police Crime Laboratories

  • V. R. Sreenivasan
Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 9)


This presentation will outline methods of spectro-chemical analysis (UV, VIS, IR, XRD, TLC and GC) commonly used in Police Crime Laboratories. The analysis and identification of dangerous drugs, especially those having hallucinogenic effects, will be discussed in some detail. The usefulness of fluorescence, mass spec and pyrolysis methods will be shown with some examples. Some other functions of the C.P.D. Chemistry Section will be mentioned briefly.
