CHAPTER 9: Spectroscopic Study of Pigments and Binders in Works of Art
Published:04 Jan 2021
The spectroscopic study of pigments and binders in works of art is described, focusing not only on the characterization of artists' materials, but also the presence of degradation. Several examples have been selected to cover the most important issues that a young chemist with some knowledge of conservation practices must take into account in the development of their career. The chapter is written in such a way that the most important issues of the analytical research around a project of diagnostics prior to conservation/restoration restoration works are described at the level of master's studies.
