The application of chemistry and its subfield, forensic toxicology, in a legal setting is called Forensic chemistry. Identification of unknown materials found at a crime scene can be assist by forensic chemist. High-performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, atomic absorption spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and thin layer chromatography are the methods and instruments used to identify unknown substances. The range of different methods is important due to the destructive nature of some instruments and the number of possible unknown substances that can be found at a scene. Forensic chemists prefer using nondestructive methods first to preserve evidence and to determine which destructive methods will produce the best results.
