Sample results

Dr. Shurvell compared the unknown samples with known samples of beeswax, cotton and starch, shown in the image above. The two peaks of the unknown sample (red) line echo the two peaks of the beeswax (black) line on the left, and its broad band on the right matches the cotton and starch samples. Other matches were also found with linen and flax, not shown in this graph.
