NEXAFS spectra of a set of carbonaceous particulate matter, including diesel soot, woodsmoke, and ambient particulate matter were presented. Diesel soot showed a strong Pt transition peak that dominates the entire spectrum. An absorption peak assignment for both samples as received, as well as for sequences of extracts thereof. Spectroscopy results were compared with toxicological findings. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 229th ACS National Meeting (San Diego, CA 3/13-17/2005).
