Project: Development of chemicals isolation methods and measurement protocols for isotopic analysis of copper, antimony and titanium in ancient glass by means of multicollector ICP- mass spectrometry.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-09 – 30-SEP-12
- An analytical methodology, consisting of (i) quantitative isolation of Cu, Sb or Ti in pure form from its concomitant matrix and (ii) obtaining isotopic information via multicollector ECP-mass spectrometry, will be developed for provenance determination of Cu, Sb and Mn based reagents used in antiquity to (de)colorize glass. Also non-destructive (femtosecond) laser ablation MC-ICP-MS will be used for this purpose.
