Quantification of trace crystal polymorph components using a high-speed 1D detector

AppNote B-XRD1037: quantification of trace polymorphs using a 1D detector

Background

Materials with the same chemical formula but different crystal structures are called crystal polymorphs. Since an X-ray diffraction profile depends on the crystal structure of the measured material, X-ray diffraction measurement is used to evaluate crystal polymorphs. Here we show an example in which a trace component of anatase (TiO₂) contained in titanium oxide with a rutile (TiO₂) structure, sold commercially as a reagent, was evaluated with the standard addition method by using a high-speed 1-dimensional detector.
