The fluorometric characterization of asphalts

Abstract

Fluorescence microphotometry has been used as a technique for the characterization of asphalt binder quality and the deterioration of asphalt cements, The technique employs optical microscopy for the in situ identification of asphalt binder from aggregate materials in cements, thereby eliminating the need to solvent extract the binder for evaluation. It may also obviate the possibility of solvent interaction or interference with the physical and chemical properties of asphalt binders that have developed in-service.
