A PRELIMINARY STUDY ON FORENSIC EXAMINATION OF VERMILION STAINS BY USING THIN LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY

Prachi Shukla, Anu Singla, Saba Rashid

Abstract


Cosmetic commodities are often turned up as trace manifest at the crime scenes such as lipstick, blood, soil, glass, sindoor, paints etc.
BACKGROUND: Sindoor is trace evidence and readily swapped from one article to another. It may serve to associate the victim to the suspect or
crime scene and suspect to the victim or crime scene.
RESULT: In the suggested course, 15 sindoor samples of the varied brands were solicited. 10 solvent systems were worked on each sample of
sindoor in which the four solvent systems [methanol: acetone (8:2), Acetonitrile: Acetone:methanol (2:4:4), Acetonitrile: methanol (2.5:7.5) and
benzene: methanol: acetic acid (8;1:1)] were established for the evaluation of sindoor specimens by employing Thin Layer Chromatography.
CONCLUSION: sindoor tints that are encountered at the crime scene can be singled out or scrutinized by testing it with its substantive origin by
thin layer chromatography with newly improved solvent system.
