Forensic use of organic compounds

Hydrocarbons

Drugs

Fire accelerants

Petrol:

It is petroleum-derived, and consists mostly of aliphatic hydrocarbons enhanced with iso-octane or the aromatic hydrocarbons toluene and benzene to increase its octane rating.

Butane Gas:

consumed

from lighters

C4H10

Diesel:

Diesel is produced from oil and is a hydrocarbon mixture, obtained in the fractional distillation of crude oil between 200 °C and 350 °C at atmospheric pressure

Carbon tetrachloride:

Used for solvent abuse

CCl4

Forensic use of organic compounds

Alcohols

Fire accelerants

Drugs

Ethyl Alcohol – Ethanol:

(C2H5OH), flash point 13 oC; ignition temp. 365 oC; explosive limits 3.5%-19.0%

4-hydroxybutanoic acid (GHB):

Date rape drug. GHB has been used in cases of drug-related sexual assault

Explosives

Dyes

Glycerol or glycerine:

Used as starting material for nitro-glycerine

BTTN :Military propellant for missiles: the mixture

can be made by co-nitration of butanetriol and

glycerol

Sudan Red G: It is considered carcinogenic and

genotoxic

Forensic use of organic compounds

Ketones

Fire accelerants

Drugs

Methcathinone:

2-(methylamino)-propiophenone.

Psychoactive stimulant. Addictive.

Can be smoked, injected, or taken orally .

Acetone:(Dimethyl ketone)

flash point -20 degrees C; ignition temperature 465.4 degrees C; explosive limits 2.6%-13.0%

Dyes

Explosives

9,10-dioxoanthracene

ACETONE: precursor of TATP.

TATP: The synthesis of the explosive is made through oxidation of acetone using hydrogen peroxide

Forensic use of organic compounds

Carboxylic acids

Drugs

Benzoylecgonine (ecgonine benzoate) is the primary metabolite of cocaine. It is formed in the liver by the metabolism of cocaine

Forensic use of organic compounds

Esters

Fire accelerants

Drugs

Biodiesel refers to a non-petroleum-based diesel fuel consisting of short chain alkyl (methyl or ethyl) esters

Explosives

Benzocaine (local anaesthetic) :

Benzocaine is often favoured by drug

dealers to bulk out their cocaine supplies.

while many dealers use the cheaper

paracetamol or corn flour, Benzocaine gives

a numbing effect (like purer cocaine

should have).

Dibutylphatalate:

Plasticizer used in explosives. Plasticizers

are additives that increase the plasticity or

fluidity.

Amides

Dyes

Yellow 13: pigment

Drugs

Fraud between drug dealers

Lidocaine is often added to cocaine as

a diluent because it numbs the gums when applied,

giving the impression of higher cocaine purity

Forensic use of organic compounds

Amines

Drugs

Explosives

Ephedrine: found incold remedies, but used to

Enhance performance. Overdose can lead to death.

Similar chemical structure than methamphetamine

Hexanitrodiphenylamine: 40% part of an

explosive called hexanite; rest 60% TNT.

Obsolete explosive from WWII

Dyes

Indigo: found in foodstuff and textiles

(jeans)

Forensic use of organic compounds

Nitro-compounds

Explosives

2,3-dimethyl-2,3-dinitrobutane: used as a detection taggant for

explosives. Added in C-4

Picric acid:

2,4,6-trinitrophenol (TNP): Like other highly nitrated compounds such as TNT, picric acid is an explosive

RDX or cyclonite:

main explosive In C-4.

Military explosive
