Title: Limitations of Handheld XRF Instruments as a Quantitative Tool for Analyzing Heavy Metal Pesticides on Organic Art Objects
Authors: Gencay Ustun, Ozge
Keywords: conservation science
analytical instrumentation
pesticides detection
Issue Date: 16-Dec-2008
Abstract: This research demonstrates some of the many factors that complicate the quantitative analysis of heavy metal pesticides, i.e. lead, arsenic, and mercury compounds on organic objects with handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzers. A few of these factors include environmental conditions such as relative humidity and temperature, properties of the substrate (e.g. density, geometry), the instrument's detection limit of the metal of interest, and interfaces from other elements.
