    Abstract

    Clothes from an assault case were recently submitted to our laboratory in order to determine if the suspect had been sprayed with Halt! Dog Repellent. The three major capsaicinoids of the Capsicum species, capsaicin, dihydrocapsaicin and nordihydrocapsaicin were extracted and identified using GC/MS. The spectra compared favorably with the remaining repellent in the can and cited literature values.
