The optimistic result of the efforts of the final two decades were the improvement of a giant new crew of ceramic fabrics believed to own intrinsic mechanical estate merits, of which the transformation toughened zirconias, and the ceramic matrix composites are reliable examples, including more advantageous powder construction equipment and powder shaping processes.

The toxicology part has increased enormously to supply the simplest forensic and environmental toxicology in Scotland. Inorganic analytical amenities can be found for the research of metal poisons by way of atomic absorption spectrometry, neutron activation research, X-ray fluorescence and anodic stripping voltametry. natural analytical toxicology is pursued utilizing gasoline chromatography, excessive functionality liquid chromatography, immunoassays, and fuel chromatography mass spectrometry. except the traditional examine and regimen investigations of a toxicological laboratory the dept specialises within the research of fireplace similar deaths, solvent abuse (glue sniffing) and hint aspect stories in human subjects.
