Chemistry and Chemical Analysis


Detection, identification, quantitation or comparison of substances based on their chemistry might seem daunting, but there can be great forensic significance to the presence of traces of an oil, or in the identification of a powder, or in the answers to a huge number of questions which only a chemist can answer.

Forensic Chemistry includes the trace or compositional analysis of poisons, drugs and alcohol, fire residues, accelerants on clothing or from fire scenes, chemical contaminants, pollutants in environmental, product safety or personal injury cases, building debris, condom lubricants and so on. Our chemical analysis experts can address general contact issues and report on safe levels of exposure in health and safety cases. If you have a chemistry or chemical analysis question, please contact our Durham office.
