Proton-induced X-ray emmision and proton-induced gamma-ray emission analyses have been used to determine the elemental content of four oil fly ash samples collected from the flue line of an oil-fired power plant. X-ray absorption spectroscopy was used to characterize the vanadium and nickel compounds present in the fly ash. Vanadium was present primarily as VOSO4·3H2O and nickel was present as a mixture of NiSO4 and NiO.
