Abstract

High precision proton-induced X-ray (PIXE) thick target spectra of carbonaceous meteorites have been deconvoluted using previously described programs. Even in cases of totally overlapping peaks excellent fits to spectra were obtained. Concentrations for 15 elements in the mass range 56–100, as well as Pb, agree well in most cases with previous literature values. The total concentration range studied was over 105, with the lowest concentrations precisely analyzed being around 1 ppm.
