Analysis of Chemical Evidence: Spectroscopy and Chromatography What is involved in spectroscopy and chromatography…  And what evidence is best  suited to this type of analysis? Why?    Spectroscopy utilizes the absorption and/or emission of light to analyze evidence.  Due to the  duality of light, the fact that has properties of transverse waves AND particle-like properties,  we can make very specific examinations of both energy and matter.  Types of spectroscopy  include the use of energy all along the electromagnetic spectrum of energy, with each type of  energy helping to determine very specific things about the evidence being evaluated.     Chromatography separates mixtures, allowing for a quantitative analysis of what is in a  mixture – allowing the comparison of an unknown to a known – or the purification of a sample  before further analysis with a mass spectrophotometer.
