    Abstract

    The results of gunshot residue tests in more than 800 criminal cases are described. A combination of neutron activation and atomic absorption analyses was found to be the most efficient method for the determination of trace amounts of antimony and barium on swabs. A statistical treatment was used as a basis for the evaluation of individual test results.
