Abstract

The feasibility of determining metallic elements used as mordants or dyes with inorganic constituents was tested using inductively coupled plasma – mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). For this purpose, modern, historic and archaeological samples were investigated. Mordants containing copper, iron, tin, aluminium or uranium were successfully identified as well as an organic dye with a substitutional bromine.
