Forensic Chemistry Fighting Crimes in the Community
Forensic laboratories and researchers have an important role in using chemical techniques to support the judicial system and protect the public''s health. The current issue for the forensic scientist is the growing emergence of Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) equating to the need for method development to aid in detection. These novel compounds have required an increase in research effort and utilisation of state of the art instrumentation such as high resolution mass spectrometry.
RACI NSW Analytical & Environmental Group has organised an online webinar that brings together experienced scientists using forensic science to support law enforcement and create a safer world. Analysis and detection of novel psychoactive substances is a major theme.
