      The Forensic Chemistry Literature     


This Digest will be an ongoing project, where links to Forensic Chemistry resources will be collected, as well as citations of interest from the Forensic Chemistry literature (with links to the articles in HTML/PDF format). I will probably not be able to easily find all such references posted here myself, so I would greatly appreciate if you could PM me with any such citations you can find, formatted as below, including a link to where it can be found. 

If you experience problems with any of the PDF files, try upgrading to Acrobat Reader 6.0: (
