Physical Methods Section


An X-ray spectrometric method independent of the matrix composition has been developed for the determination of S and Cl in the case of overlapping peaks. The principle of the methods is based on the observation that the sum of the peak areas from S and Cl is independent of their concentration ratios, only the different sections of the peak depend on these values. Using this method the sulphur and chlorine contents have been determined for crude oil samples collected from different geographical regions.
