A flat single crystal spectrometer was configured to measure the valence band x-ray spectra of various forms of sulfur in air pollutants. While most different valence states showed differences in the structure of the K sub beta band, particular emphasis was placed on distinguishing sulfide from sulfate in samples simulating pollution particulate collections. The relative fraction of sulfide and sulfate in samples containing as low as 25 micrograms per sq cm total sulfur can be measured with an accuracy of about 10%.
Performed by the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C. under Interagency agreement EPA-IAG-D6-F344. Project officer: Jack Wagman. "EPA-600/2-76-265." "October 1976."
