Abstract

Quantitative non-destructive analysis of individual constituents of historic rag paper is crucial for its effective preservation. In this work, we examine the potentials of mid- and near-infrared spectroscopy, however, in order to fully utilise the selectivity inherent to spectroscopic multivariate measurements, genetic algorithms were used to select spectral data derived from information-rich FT-IR or UV-vis-NIR measurements to build multivariate calibration models based on partial least squares regression, relating spectra to gelatine content in paper. A selective but laborious chromatographic method for the quantification of hydroxyproline (HYP) has been developed to provide the reference data on gelatine content. We used 9-fluorenylmethyl chloroformate (FMOC) to derivatise HYP, which was subsequently determined using reverse-phase liquid chromatographic separation and fluorimetric detection. In this process, the sample is consumed, which is why the method can only be used as a reference method.The sampling flexibility afforded by small-size field-portable spectroscopic instrumentation combined with chemometric data analysis, represents an attractive addition to existing analytical techniques for cultural heritage materials.
