The present study was done in an attempt to distinguish between paint samples of automobiles obtained from cars of same company “MARUTI”. 20 samples of paint were analyzed with the help of solubility tests and 5 samples with the help of instruments such as UV Spectrophotometry each. The solubility tests were performed using 3 liquids, Chloroform, Sulphuric acid and Nitric acid. The results obtained clearly proved that the combination of both methods yields better results than when used individually. Through this research, a database has been created which can be useful in further forensic related work. It can be really helpful in hit and run cases where possibility of exchange of paint is very high.

Keywords: Solubility tests, UV Spectrophotometry, Automobile paint, Forensic analysis.
