The research described was initiated with the objective of developing methods to identify and measure inorganic compounds in particulate emissions which emanate from sources using or processing fossil fuels. An extensive literature review was carried out to ascertain prior knowledge on the possible compound forms present in these emissions and to review analytical methodologies. Based on the findings of the literature review, appropriate methodologies were selected for laboratory trial. Concurrent with the method trail work, large masses, 20 to 100 grams, of field samples were collected representative of a range of both coal and oil-fired fly ashes, and the selected methodology development efforts were evaluated on these field samples as well as on synthesized samples. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, and chemical phase separations and analyses are the methods which have provided the most definitive identification of inorganic compounds. The structural findings by these methods are complemented by complete cation-anion chemical determinations. Extensive data on the composition of crude oils, coal and ashes are also presented.
