    Abstract

    A macro program written for Hewlett Packard Mass Selective Detector data stations that performs data analysis of fire debris samples is presented. The program generates a report that includes ion profiles for alkane, aromatic and polynuclear aromatic compounds, plus a list identifying the major peaks of the sample chromatogram. The algorithm that incorporates the retention index of the peak into the search of the mass spectral library is described in detail.
