Abstract
Some 30 samples of writing and wrapping paper were examined using two techniques: transmission (as a KBr disc) and diffuse reflectance. About 15 blue ball pen ink samples were extracted directly from the document by means of a C2H5OH - CHCl3 mixture using an extraction apparatus which enables the separation of impurities (coming from a paper) from the extracted ball pen inks. Infrared spectra were measured on a Digilab Fourier transform spectrometer FTS-15 within the range 400 - 3800 cm-1. Statistical inference based on T2 Hotelling's test to assess the significance of differences observed in IR spectra of samples without examining the origin and essence of those differences was applied. The analysis of the spectral data was performed on a IBM-AT computer.
