Test burning of carpet and foam and potential interferences in identifying petrol in arson investigation by gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry

Sferopoulos, Rodi (2013) Test burning of carpet and foam and potential interferences in identifying petrol in arson investigation by gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry. PhD thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

Work described in this thesis contains the results of the study on subjecting carpet and foam to different burning tests and the evaluation, by gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS), of the burnt residues for the purpose of identifying compounds which may potentially interfere with the identification of petrol in arson investigation.
