Potassium Pyrosulfate Fusions for X-ray Spectroscopy
An X-ray spectrographic method is reported for the analysis of brass and bronze samples by the potassium pyrosulfate fusion technique. The fusions are carried out at moderate temperatures in glass beakers. Absorption and enhancement effects are removed. Standards prepared from pure metals are used to determine copper, lead, nickel, tin, and zinc in the samples. The fusions are ground and briquetted so that a uniform surface is exposed to the X-rays.
