Forensic chemistry is defined as the application of chemistry to assist in the elucidation of legal problems. Forensic chemistry embraces a large and diversified field. It includes not only the chemical side of criminal investigation, but also the analysis of any material, the quality of which may give rise to legal proceedings. Forensic chemistry is not limited to purely the chemical questions involved in legal proceedings. It is also related to the other branches of forensic science, such as chemical toxicology, legal medicine, ballistics, questioned documents, dactyloscopy, and photography.
Forensic chemists should develop the standard methods to give accurate values and/or to detect minute quantities from latent evidence related to crime. The forensic chemist could also develop new chemicals to pursue latent evidences at the crime scene, such as finger print, foot print, blood and other biological fluids, and tissues.
