This subject aims to provide students with an introduction to the fundamental principles and practical applications of the major analytical techniques used in cultural materials conservation. The subject builds upon the students" knowledge gained in Conservation Materials Chemistry. It covers the use of analytical techniques relevant to the conservation of cultural heritage, including micro-chemical testing, mass spectrometry, atomic absorption and emission spectroscopy. Students learn to devise appropriate testing regimes, prepare samples, undertake analysis and manage analytical qualit
