Paper Abstract

A JEOL 840 Scanning-Electro-Microscope (SEM) at 20 kV operating potential and with a 3 to 6 nA electron beam intensity has been used to study mural paintings of Stavropoleos Church (18th century, Bucharest, Romania). The SEM offers the opportunity to make point cross- section analysis and to determine the topographic distribution of the chemical elements in every layer. This method was associated with optic-microscopical observations and wet chemistry analysis. Many samples were tested to identify the painting technique, the pigments, the binders and also to point out the particularities of the studied object.
