Company Profile:
INQUIFOR (Research in Forensic Chemistry) has worked primarily on the development of analytical methodologies useful in forensic chemistry. Although they have worked on some issues related to forensic chemistry (glass and inks), our greatest contribution has been in the field of explosives (military and civilian). So far we have mainly studied gunpowder and dynamite, focusing on the study of nitrocellulose. At present, we direct our research to other types of explosives, such as the fireworks, other military explosives and improvised explosive devices. It is important to indicate that their research in the field of forensic science, is being spread in the best journals in Analytical Chemistry and Forensic Science. They have also applied for a patent and they are preparing a second.
Profiltitel

DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYTICAL TOOLS FOR SECURITY AND DEFENSE

What we offer:
•Development of methodologies by capillary electrophoresis for the determination of organic and inorganic components of military, civil and home-made (IEDs) explosives.
•Design of a portable Capillary Electrophoresis system and exploration of its potential for the detection of chemical warfare agents.
•Application of vibrational spectroscopic techniques (Raman and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) to the analysis of explosives and other samples of criminalistics interest (gunshot residues, inks, etc.).
•Development of methodologies by chromatographic techniques (high performance liquid chromatography, ionic chromatography, high performance thin layer chromatography and gas chromatography) for the analysis of explosives and other samples of criminalistics interest.
•Study of atomic mass spectrometry (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry) for the analysis of samples of forensic interest (glass, ink, paint, paper, etc.).
•Application of molecular mass spectrometry for the analysis of military, civil and home-made (IEDs) explosives.
•Use of chemometric tools for the interpretation of complex data or electrophoretic/chromatographic profiles.
•Study of toxicity of chemicals by microorganisms.
