Author Affiliations +
Analysis of homemade and nonstandard explosives and their post-blast residues may be a bit of a challenge for forensic analysis. Analysis of these materials becomes more and more important concerning both the current global situation and the considerably easy access to precursors that are often commonly obtainable chemicals. The aim of two year running project is prepare some of these substances and carry out experimental explosions and tests, and map analyses possibilities using a wide range of available analytical techniques in forensic labs. Samples of primary substances, prepared explosives and post-blast residues are analysed in a complex way in terms of organic and inorganic components. All data obtained, including visual documentation, are stored in a specialized database for security forces and their expert workplaces. The first version of the database is to be introduced.
