Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is a powerful tool for analyzing fire debris samples for the presence of accelerants. By generating ion profiles for specific chemical classes, GC-MS allows conclusive determinations to be made in some situations where GC-FID is insufficient. Three case examples that illustrate the use of GC-MS and ion profile techniques are presented here.
