Source identification of a tar residue from Mumbai Beach
MetadataShow full item record
A tar residue from Mumbai Beach, Maharashtra, India was matched with the suspected source sample from a tanker using UV, IR and GLC techniques. Negligible differences in several ratios of UV absorbances and ratios of infrared transmittances of the samples as well as their superimposable GLC fingerprint patterns indicated that the beach tar might have originated from the tanker.
