Application Note: Analysis of Low Concentration Sulfur in Petroleum-based Fuels by WDXRF According to ASTM D2622-10
4 January 2013

Sulfur in petroleum-based fuels contributes to atmospheric pollution. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry has been used for quantitative analysis of sulfur in petroleum-based fuels, owing to simple sample preparation. This application note demonstrates quantitative analysis of low concentration sulfur in diesel fuel, gasoline and kerosene according to ASTM D2622-10 on Rigaku ZSX Primus, a wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer.
