  1. Isotope ratio mass spectrometry as a tool for source inference in forensic science: A critical review

    Forensic Science International 251:139 (2015) PMID 25909994

    Highlights • The definition of the source, often missing, prejudices results interpretation. • There is a need for more fundamental data on intravariabil...
  2. The impact of age at death on the lag time of radiocarbon values in human bone

    Forensic Science International 251:56 (2015) PMID 25863698

    • Analysis of radiocarbon in human bone is used to interpret the post-mortem interval. • Analysis allows proper placement of the radiocarbon values on the modern b...

  4. Corrigendum to “Surveys of vehicle colour frequency and the transfer of vehicle paints to stationary objects in Sydney, Australia” [Forensic Sci. Int. 248 (2015) 124–128]

    Forensic Science International 251:115 (2015)

  5. Systematic investigation of drip stains on apparel fabrics: The effects of prior-laundering, fibre content and fabric structure on final stain appearance

    Forensic Science International 250:98 (2015) PMID 25828382

    • Finishing treatments effect stain formation on non-laundered apparel. • Prior-laundering changes fabric properties, which may alter stain characteristics. ...
  6. 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...
  7. Visualising substrate–fingermark interactions: Solid-state NMR spectroscopy of amino acid reagent development on cellulose substrates

    Forensic Science International 250:8 (2015) PMID 25766739

    Most spectroscopic studies of the reaction products formed by ninhydrin, 1,2-indanedione-zinc (Ind-Zn) and 1,8-diazafluoren-9-one (DFO) when reacted with amino acids or latent fingermarks on paper substrates are focused on visible absorption or luminescence spectroscopy. In addition, structural ...

  9. The importance of microbiological testing for establishing cause of death in 42 forensic autopsies

    Forensic Science International 250:27 (2015) PMID 25769131

    • Microbiological testing is important for establishing the cause of death. • Viruses are only the cause of death in few cases. ...
  10. 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 ...
