Special Issue Information
The study of cultural heritage very often requires a multidisciplinary approach involving many scientific disciplines such as chemistry, physics, earth sciences, and conservation science. Within this context, scientific methods are applied for the study of works of arts with the aim of deepening knowledge with respect to a material’s chemical and physical properties, as well as their conservation and deterioration processes. For this Special Issue, papers dealing with these aspects are welcome. Topics can range from the study of both organic and inorganic materials (both the study of their properties and of the state of degradation induced by environment) to the conservation of these through the use of new materials. Papers may focus on the development of new techniques, including sample preparation or the application of non-destructive instrumentation. Papers highlighting a multidisciplinary approach are also welcome.
