Basic Principles of Forensic Chemistry is designed to provide a clear and concise understanding of forensic chemistry. The text begins with an introduction to the basic principles of chemistry and expands through organic chemistry into forensic investigation. The detailed chapters focus on both the theoretical and practical aspects of forensic chemistry with emphasis on controlled substance testing and identification. Leading experts in the field contribute general examination techniques followed by applications to more specific models. In addition, the text contains a comprehensive collection of information and data on controlled substances commonly encountered in forensic investigation including; detailed structural analysis, physical and physiological effects, functional group reactivity, and results of analytical examination. Also illustrated is arguably the greatest challenge to the forensic chemist: the investigation and processing of clandestine laboratory operations. The Forensic Chemistry Laboratory Manual is included on a CD-ROM and contains a collection of practical exercises designed to support theoretical principles covered in the text. This provides the student with valuable hands-on experience while adding clarity and continuity to the topics of discussion. Essential and comprehensive, Basic Principles of Forensic Chemistry provides the fundamental knowledge required for a rewarding journey into the field of forensic chemistry.

University, Multan, Pakistan. He has more than seventeen years of experience in the field of Forensic Sciences at the California State Department of Justice in the Riverside Crime Laboratory. He is an accomplished Forensic Scientist whose expertise expands in various fields including forensic chemistry, forensic biology, and forensic toxicology. He has authored a number of publications on related topics. Mr. Khan responded to hundreds of clandestine laboratory operations as a clandestine laboratory field expert. He examined the evidence from thousands of clandestine laboratory operations. Mr. Khan testified in various courts as a clandestine laboratory analyses expert witness. Mr. Khan is a recognized expert witness in other fields of forensics and has appeared more than three hundred times in federal, state, and local county courts in this capacity. Mr. Khan has more than twelve years of teaching experience as a part-time college instructor of Forensic Chemistry and Biology. He has developed curriculum of forensic chemistry, forensic biology, and forensic toxicology courses for Mt. San Jacinto College in Riverside, California. He is a dedicated professional whose insight and tireless efforts provided the driving force for this project. Thomas J. Kennedy Mr. Kennedy holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Rochester, Rochester, N.Y. and a Master of Science in Chemistry from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, CA. Mr. Kennedy is a former police officer and has been teaching Chemistry at Victor Valley College since 1994. He has been chairman of the Department of Chemistry for the past eight years. Mr. Kennedy is a passionate teacher focused on student success. Donnell R. Christian Donnell R. Christian is a PhD candidate at the University of South Africa, holds a Masters in Criminal Justice from American Military University and Bachelor s degrees in Chemistry and Police Administration from Northern Arizona University. He is the author of Forensic Investigation of Clandestine Laboratories (2003). His companion book, Field Guide to Clandestine Laboratory Identification and Investigation (2004) provides a ready reference for police, fire, and emergency responders who potentially encounter clandestine labs in their daily activities. Mr. Christian has published articles on the analysis, and the clandestine manufacture and analysis, of controlled substances and has developed training programs for investigators, laboratory examiners, and attorneys involved in the investigation, examination, and prosecution of clandestine labs. He also authored a chapter concerning the analysis of controlled substances in of Forensic Science, An Introduction to Scientific and Investigative Techniques (2002, 2005, 2009) and the forensic chemistry section in The Forensic Laboratory Handbook, Procedures and Practices (2005, 2011). Mr. Christian is the Director of Forensic Programs at Professional Business Solutions, Inc. and is the former Forensic Science Development Coordinator for the United States Department of Justice s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP).

Mr. Christian served as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Southwestern Association of Forensic Scientists (SWAF.



Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
