海报摘要

A multidimensional approach was followed to differentiate body hairs based on their physico-chemical properties. This case report focused on the analysis of body hair samples from a female participant (age 39) to control for inter-individual variability in hair chemical makeup and other confounding variables. Hair samples were analyzed using synchrotron synchrotron microbeam X-ray fluorescence (SR-XRF), attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) (complemented with chemometrics analysis), energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX) (complemented with heatmap analysis), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis (complemented by descriptive statistics) to profile different body hairs in terms of their elemental, biochemical, thermal, and cuticle properties. This multidimensional approach provided supportive information to emphasize that intricate factors are responsible for the differences in physico-chemical properties that may have important implications for forensic science and other studies involving hair as a research matrix.
