Abstract

In the course of an investigation of methods suitable for the determination of the extent and causes of the deterioration of leather, the x-ray diffraction patterns of a number of new and deteriorated samples of leather were made. In the comparison of these diffraction patterns to those reported in the literature (1), we were impressed by the fact that none of the literature diffraction patterns show the reflections due to the additives. A probable explanation of this is that x-ray studies in the past have been made with the primary purpose of determining the effect of tanning agents on the reflection spacings of the collagen fibers.
