  5. Forensic analysis of tire rubbers based on their sulfur chemical states

    Forensic Science International 250:53 (2015) PMID 25800713

    • Discrimination of tire rubbers is studied based on their sulfur chemical states, or sulfur XANES. • The tire rubbers, even tires of the same brand, can be discri...
  6. A new method to reduce false positives due to antimony in detection of gunshot residues

    Forensic Science International 250:87 (2015) PMID 25828380

    False positives due to the presence of antimony in vehicle seat fabrics are a problem in gunshot residue (GSR) analysis, in particular, when graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) is employed. In this study, we sought to determine the reason for the prevalence of false positive ...

    • AFLP-based kinship methods of Calliphorid DNA is a valid technique for inferring postmortem relocation of a corpse. • Nine new Phormia regina COII haplotypes fou...
  16. Application of Purkait's triangle method on a skeletal population from southern Europe

    Forensic Science International 245:203.e1 (2014)

    The existence of sexual dimorphism in individual elements of the human skeleton allows sex determination and significantly enhances the identification of fragmentary skeletal material. Traditionally, the pelvis and the skull are used for an accurate sex determination. Sometimes they ar...
