Organic Mass-Spectrometry of Art Materials: Work in Progress
John Mills and Raymond White
Technical Bulletin Volume 6, 1982
Mass-spectrometry performed on compounds separated using gas chromatography can give precise information on organic mixtures (microanalysis). The article describes a detailed method and the instrumentation, as well as applications to dried oil, cholesterol in egg fats, and resin in paint media, varnish, lacquer.
