Calibrations (Sm, Eu, Gd, Nd and Ce) were carried out by using internal standards of these lanthanides which were diluted with potassium bromide. In most of the calibrations the higher levels of concentration is eliminated, since it is not a linear increase in the peak intensity, but less than the expected signal, this effect can be explained by the effect of self-absorption as explained observed previously and it is higher at high concentrations.
FTIR spectra were collected in the diffuse transmittance mode with potassium bromide as a diluent.
Most of the potassium bromate added to foods converts to non-carcinogenic potassium bromide during the process of baking, but small but still significant unconverted amounts can remain, putting eaters everywhere at risk.
