Characterization of Red sandalwood by ICP-MS Analysis, Optical absorption and EPR spectroscopic methods
Frost, Ray L., Reddy, S. Lakshmi, Reddy, N.C. Gangi, Reddy, R. Rama Subba, Reddy, G. Siva, & Reddy, B. Jagannatha (2006) Characterization of Red sandalwood by ICP-MS Analysis, Optical absorption and EPR spectroscopic methods. Radiation Effects and Defects in Solids, 161(9), pp. 537-547.
Red sandalwood contains Cd, Fe, Ni, Mn, C, S, H elements. ICP-MS results indicate that the red sandalwood contains Ni (61.877), Cu (281.256), Ba (3722.064) and Sr (6365.482) ppm elements respectively. It has partial semi conducting nature. EPR spectrum of the sample is due to Fe(III) in tetragonal distortion and its ash sample also contains Mn(II) in addition to Fe(III). The g values obtained for Fe(III) in the sample are 6.52, 2.63 and 1.92 respectively. The observed g and A values for Mn (II) are 1.990 and 88.5 G respectively. Mn(II) may be low in concentration in the sample. Optical absorption spectrum clearly indicates the presence of both ferric iron and Ni(II) in octahedral geometry. NIR Spectrum is due to carbonate overtones and harmonics and water fundamentals.
