Quantitative analysis

The relative concentration of each of the components in a two-component mixture can be obtained by measuring the relative intensities of two strong non-overlapping lines, one belonging to component A, the other to component B, in the powder pattern of the mixture. A well-known example is the determination of anatase in rutile (see Jenkins and de Vries, 1967).
