X-Ray Fluoresence Spectrometry in Geological Samples

Govil, P K (1994) X-Ray Fluoresence Spectrometry in Geological Samples. In: Proceedings of the Workshop on Modern Methods of Chemical Analysis for Minerals Metals and Pollutants (MMCA 1994), January 18-20,1994, National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.



Geological samples comprising of various rocks, ores and minerals need to be studied for their elemental chemical data. X-ray fluorescence spectrometry is a precise and accurate analytical technique for determining elements from atomic No.4 (boron) to 92 (uranium) at concentration levels of 100% to a few parts per million (ppm) in solids, liquids and powders. The non-destructive nature of anal- ysis, speed, versatility, automation, sensitivity, sele-ctivity, large sample throughput have made XRF technique a widely practised and well established technique for the determination of major, minor and trace elements in rock samples.
