Graphical Abstract:


Raman Spectroscopy is on the verge of becoming a promising tool in Forensic Toxicology with the increasing number of studies in the literature. Raman Spectroscopy, which has been found successful in many areas of forensic sciences and has found its place in routine use, is gaining more importance recently in Forensic Toxicological studies especially with Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy due to its fast, reliable and cost-effective results. In this paper, the forensic toxicological studies carried out by using Raman Spectroscopy are reviewed and discussed with the findings, and suggestions are made regarding the use and study of Raman Spectroscopy in the field of Forensic Toxicology for future applications.

Keywords: Forensic sciences, forensic toxicology, illicit drugs, raman spectroscopy, SERS, therapeutic drugs.
