Item description for Contributions To Conservation: Research in Conservation at the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) by Jacob A Mosk...

Contributions to Conservation presents the latest research in conservation conducted by the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) -- a national centre of excellence promoting the study and conservation of objects of art and science through scientific research, education and consultancy. The objective of the ICN is to improve the quality of conservation and collections care in museums, galleries, archives, libraries and other public collections.

This reference work incorporates the accumulated knowledge and results from a broad range of conservation research projects undertaken by the ICN. Thirteen research papers, authored by acknowledged, international specialists, cover such topics as:
removal of lacquers from silver
protection of calcareous materials against indoor air pollutants
causes and phenomena of ink corrosion and issues with phytate treatment
an extensive survey of modern pigments and their history
the measurement of corrosive gases in the museum atmosphere
chromatographic analysis of bitumen and natural resins
photoluminescence of decaying paper
case study: discoloration and degradation of 19th century paper
history, properties and problems of early plastics
the use of iron-gall complexes in writing and dyeing textiles

Interdisciplinary co-operation and exchange of knowledge play an important part in each conservation research project undertaken by the ICN. Conservators, archivists, curators, conservation consultants and educators, as well as academics, students and researchers in the field, will therefore welcome Contributions to Conservation as a rich and broad-based source of knowledge, technique and experience -- of great practical benefit in finding optimal solutions to conservation problems.
