Geological Applications :

X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis provides a multitude of information about crystalline phases within rocks, which is essential to understanding their mineralogy, chemistry, and formation conditions. XRD data provides direct information about the identity of crystalline phases, their relative abundances, crystallite size, strain, and site chemistry.

Common Applications of XRD in Geology:
  • Determining extractability of metals from ore-bearing deposits
  • Evaluating purity of pharmaceutical-grade limestone, used in antacid products
  • Analyzing core samples taken for reservoir characterization
  • Speciation and concentration of clay minerals within drilling mud for indirect monitoring of physical properties
  • Identifying garnet type in kimberlites as an indicator for diamond concentration and quality
  • Quantifying dolomitization for iron and zinc ore potential
  • Determining metamorphic grade of rock
  • Implementing spiking methods to determine concentration of non-crystalline phases
  • Computing hydration states of clay and salt minerals
Corrosion & Scale Application:

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a powerful technique which allows rapid phase determination and quantification of minerals formed by scaling and corrosion. XRD allows for phase identification of crystalline materials by comparing a collected diffraction pattern with a reference pattern of a known material in a database, such as the ICDD Powder Diffraction File (PDF). Quantitative multiphase analysis is made possible by Rietveld analysis on X-ray diffraction pattern with MDI’s sophisticated Jade XRD analysis software.
