    Abstract

    The classic examination of arson-related evidence in the forensic science laboratory strives to identify the particular accelerant employed by the perpetrator. Very often this is not possible because of the complete combustion of that accelerant, loss of the unburned accelerant because of evaporation, or loss in the mechanics of extinguishing the fire.
