Ninety-six infrared spectra of more than 50 organic pigments were
produced as part of the ASTM project to develop a test method to
identify organic pigments in artists' colored pencils (ASTM
D01-1116*). Based on my recommendation as the project's Principal
Investigator, the ASTM granted permission to distribute the spectra,
freely, to FTIR users who worked in the art conservation and
historic preservation communities. The spectra were offered to
analysts via Irusers-l, an internet listserv dedicated to discussion
about infrared spectroscopy of cultural materials, and were sent by
e-mail to respondents. I am pleased that new analysts, like
Sandrine, are still interested in the spectra and could find them

Please contact me directly about the spectra or Irusers-l using the
contact information that follows. If you e-mail and don't receive a
reply within a few days or a week, please write again to help ensure
your mail is received and read.
