Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chemical and physical analytical methods that are used to study art materials and archaeological objects have shown that such scientific investigation is an essential tool for acquiring information on the materials that make up these objects and for assessing their decay.

Organic Mass Spectrometry in Art and Archaeology provides an overview of the analysis of art and archaeological materials, presenting the fundamental principles along with procedures and various mass spectrometric techniques used, including LC/MS, GC/MS, Tof-SIMS and compound-specific stable isotope analysis.

Included within this text, from an international group of contributors, are:

  • Case studies and examples illustrating how techniques can be used to reveal the history of objects, including how they were produced
  • Didactic examples of the analytical results of real samples
  • A comprehensive and relevant bibliography

Edited by world-wide respected specialists with extensive experience of the GC/MS analysis of art objects, this text will provide a useful source of information to scientists, researchers, students, archaeologists, art historians and museum conservators and anyone with an interest in art conservation and restoration.

Book News Annotation:

The organic matter that makes up certain works of art, such as paint, and is found at archaeological sites, is being studied using mass spectrometry (MS). 24 chemists at institutes in Poland, France, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Italy present their observations and methods on using these techniques in 16 chapters grouped into sections on direct MS analysis, gas chromatography/MS, liquid chromatography/MS, and other MS techniques. There are chapters describing the use of each of these techniques to characterize protein paint binders, terpenic resins, lipids, and wax. The editors provide a full chapter overview on organic materials in art and archaeology, and Gianluca Giorgi (chemistry, U. of Siena, Italy) presents an introductory chapter on the use of MS in these fields. Both editors are with the U. of Pisa, where they are affiliated with the research group of the Laboratory in Chemical Science for the Safeguard of Cultural Heritage. Detailed and authoritative, this resource fills a gap in the field. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
