Study Measures Plastics in Contemporary Artworks with FT-IR
A study that addresses the need for analytical tools for identifying, characterizing, and setting up adequate conservation strategies for museum collections that contain plastics was completed within the framework of two research projects dealing with the conservation of contemporary artworks. In it, a collection of polymeric samples was analyzed to create a reference spectral archive. All the spectra were recorded using three Fourier-transform infrared configurations: transmission, attenuated total reflection,and total reflection. MORE »
