Energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence was used to analyze for sulfur in oil in commercially prepared standards, NBS standards and laboratory samples. The technique of energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence for sulfur was found to be accurate, precise, and required minimal sample preparation. In addition it was non-destructive, and enabled the simultaneous determination of sulfur and its interfering elements: phosphorus; zinc; barium; calcium; and chlorine.
