Characteristics of Gum Arabic (Acacia Senegal) Using Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Authors(3) :-Nafie A. Almuslet, Mubarak Elmahal Ahmed, Mashair A. Mohammed

In this work Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) was used to determine the constituent of Gum Arabic (Acacia Senegal) collected from five different locations in Sudan. Gum samples were irradiated with 80 mJ pulse energy of Nd -YAG laser (1064nm) and Atomic spectra Database was used for the spectral analysis of the plasma emitted from these samples. The results showed that all the five samples contain Fe, Na, Ca, Mg, K, S, C, N, O, Cr, Br, Ti, Ar, and H with different amounts. Some elements like Br, Ti and Ar are recorded here for the first time.
