This paper details the use of electron spectroscopic imaging in the elemental analysis of smoke particles inhaled by smoke-death victims. The results show that these particles have a varied structure and composition. Because of this, these particles may play a far more significant role in smoke inhalation injuries than has previous been recognized.
