Analysis of Naturally Occurring Food Toxins of Plant Origin Book Excerpt:

Natural toxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by living organisms. These toxins are not harmful to the organisms themselves, but they may be toxic to other creatures, including humans, when eaten. These chemical compounds have diverse structures and differ in biological function and toxicity. Some toxins are produced by plants as a natural defense mechanism against predators, insects, or microorganisms, or as a consequence of infestation with microorganisms, such as mold, in response to climate stress (such as drought or extreme humidity). Well-known groups of natural toxins of plant origin are: cyanogenic glycosides, pyrrolizidine alkaloids, furocoumarins, lectins, and glycoalkaloids. These plant-origin natural toxins can cause a variety of adverse health effects and pose a serious health threat to both humans and livestock. Analysis of Naturally Occurring Food Toxins of Plant Origin is divided into three sections that provide a detailed overview of different classes of food toxins that are naturally found in plants, including various analytical techniques used for their structural characterization, identification, detection, and quantification. This book provides in-depth information and comprehensive discussion over quantitative and qualitative analysis of natural toxins in plant-based foods. Key Features: • Provides a detailed overview of different classes of natural toxins found in plants. • Explains how IR, NMR, and mass spectrometry are utilized in characterization and identification. • Describes applicability of HPLC, LC-MS, GC-MS, and HPTLC techniques for detection and quantification. • Discusses progress in the field related to capillary electrophoresis, ELISA, and biosensors for quantitative application of these techniques.

Handbook of Analytical Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Toxicology Book Excerpt:

Adapting modern advances in analytical techniques to daily laboratory practices challenges many toxicologists, clinical laboratories, and pharmaceutical scientists. The Handbook of Analytical Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Toxicology helps you keep abreast of the innovative changes that can make your laboratory - and the studies undertaken in it - a success. This volume simplifies your search for appropriate techniques, describes recent contributions from leading investigators, and provides valuable evaluations and advice. Discover how to use non-invasively obtained specimens to your best advantage The text features alternative biological specimens such as hair, meconium, saliva, sweat, and vitreous humor, which are not extensively used because they require more sensitive procedures than other biological specimens. How to overcome these limitations is a major topic of the handbook. Experts describe basic principles of innovative techniques and detail how they can be adapted to analyzing alternative biological specimens. The evaluations of the pros and cons of various advances in immunodiagnostics and how they apply to analytes will help you determine their suitability to your own laboratory. The Handbook of Analytical Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Toxicology helps you make the most of innovative procedures that will open the doors to productive laboratory practices.

Handbook of Trace Evidence Analysis Book Excerpt:

Covers new trace evidence techniques and expanding areas of analysis, along with key theory and applications Developed around the need for updated information in the disciplines of trace evidence the Handbook of Trace Evidence Analysis focuses on the increasing awareness and need for validation, modern methods for addressing and controlling contamination, the shift towards incorporating statistical analyses into the interpretation phase and cutting edge research into new forensic science methods and their application. Beginning with an overview of the topic and discussing the important role that information derived from trace materials can provide during investigations, the book then presents chapters on key techniques. The first being the critical nature of microscopy, and the methods employed for the recognition, collection, and preservation of trace evidence. Subsequent chapters review the core disciplines of trace evidence examination: paints and polymers, hairs, fibers and textiles and glass. Each chapter contains in-depth discussions on the origin of the materials involved, including any natural or synthetic processes involved in their production, the nuances involved in their detection, and the methods of analysis that are used to extract valuable information from samples. In addition, suggested workflows in method and testing selections, as well as addressing specific scientific challenges as well as the limitations of knowledge on the transfer, persistence and background abundance of trace materials are discussed. The book ends by examining the interpretation of trace evidence findings from a historical perspective and examining the methods that are currently being developed. Provides an in-depth introduction to the general area of trace evidence and discusses current and new techniques Consolidates trace evidence and materials categories of testing into one reference series Offers a detailed focus on technical approaches and guidelines to trace evidence Includes analytical schemes/workflows and valuable guides for the interpretation of data and results The Handbook of Trace Evidence will appeal to forensic science academics, students, and practitioners in the trace evidence and materials science disciplines, as well as DNA analysts, toxicologists, forensic anthropologists, crime laboratory managers, criminal justice students and practitioners, and legal professionals.

Routledge Handbook of Crime Science Book Excerpt:

Crime science is precisely what it says it is: the application of science to the phenomenon of crime. This handbook, intended as a crime science manifesto, showcases the scope of the crime science field and provides the reader with an understanding of the assumptions, aspirations and methods of crime science, as well as the variety of topics that fall within its purview. Crime science provides a distinctive approach to understanding and dealing with crime: one that is outcome-oriented, evidence-based and that crosses boundaries between disciplines. The central mission of crime science is to find new ways to cut crime and increase security. Beginning by setting out the case for crime science, the editors examine the roots of crime science in environmental criminology and describe its key features. The book is then divided into two sections. The first section comprises chapters by disciplinary specialists about the contributions their sciences can make or have already made to crime science.
