Effects of Surface Cleaning with TAC
This research is an examination of the effects of Triammonium citrate at different concentrations and pH.
Cleaning tests: The paint surface is examined before and
after treatment using light microscopy and VPSEM. The surfaces
(right) have been treated with a 0.0822M solution of Citrate
at pH 5.98 (equivalent to 2% w/v TAC).
The research within the department covers a wide variety of topics and disciplines within the field of the conservation of easel paintings including technical art history, conservation science and the development of conservation treatments.
