Abstract : Major changes due to chemical combination are observed in the soft X-ray K emission spectrum of boron. The largest changes occur between elemental boron, boron nitride (BN) and boron oxide (B2O3). Spectra obtained from these compounds using a stearate crystal are compared with results of previous workers from a ruled grating. Points of agreement and differences are noted. The spectra were obtained from a flat crystal vacuum spectrometer using a flow proportional counter and electron excitation. (Author)
