Stabilization of Archaeological Composites: A Complex Challenge Requiring Compromise

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


Three archaeological iron-bone composites were treated electrochemically in sodium sesquicarbonate (pH 10) for two weeks at a fixed reduction potential. The stability of the composites was investigated by measuring oxygen consumption. The effect of the treatment on the organic material was investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
