Book Description

26 Mar 2010 0470517050 978-0470517055 1
This book provides the first comprehensive, overview and guide to forensic isotope analysis, an exciting new application of stable isotope analytical techniques.  Topics are introduced using examples and real–life case studies such as food quality control where isotope analysis has already had a major impact, in terms of consumer protection, These examples illustrate the underlying principles of isotope profiling or fingerprinting. A section comprising actual criminal case work is used to build a bridge between the introduction and the technical section to encourage students to engage with this novel departure for analytical sciences while at the same time providing hands–on examples for the experienced researcher and forensic practitioner to match problems and success stories encountered with the topics discussed in the technical section. What little information is available on the subject in book form so far, has been published as individual chapters in books dealing either with mass spectrometry, forensic geoscience or environmental forensics, this is the first book to focus on the entire spectrum of forensic isotope analysis and will be an invaluable reference to both researchers in the field and forensic practitioners.

Product Description

Review

"The book is timely and important, it is pleasantly written, generally with a positive ‘open′ mind to what stable isotope analysis can and cannot contribute to forensic and scientific investigations.  It is well produced and reasonably priced.  The figures, tables, and photographs in the book are generally informative and this aiding the overall (educational) value of the book." ( MassMatters , November 2010) "In this comprehensive book, with its copious literature references, we are offered, for the first time, a carefully written account of an exciting new field of endeavour: its history, development, technology, modus operandi, potential and future." ( Chemistry & Industry , August 23, 2010) “This is the first book exclusively dealing with forensic isotope analysis and pulls together all existing research in this emerging field.”   In the book, topics are introduced using examples and real–life case studies such as food quality control where isotope analysis has already had a major impact, in terms of consumer protection. These examples illustrate the underlying principles of isotope profiles or signatures.”   (Bio–Dundee , 1 November 2010)
