Mixed Alkali Halide Dilution Matrices for Diffuse Reflectance Infrared Spectrometry: Effect of Particle Size

Volume 43, Number 8 (Dec. 1989) Page 1293-1294

TeVrucht, Mollie L.E.; Griffiths, Peter R.

Diffuse reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectra of coal diluted in two different alkali halide matrices were compared. Pure KBr and mixed CsI/KBr were tested for use as dilution matrices. When the variable of particle size was controlled, KBr was found to be the better diluent.
