Abbott, Thomas P.; Felker, Frederick C.; Kleiman, Robert

Samples of seed, stem, woody, and proteinaceous tissue were examined by FT-IR microspectroscopy. Methods of mounting samples for examination are described. Either they were immersed in D2O, embedded in either paraffin wax, epoxy, or vinylidene chloride-acrylonitrile copolymer, or they were examined without an embedding matrix.
