    Abstract: X-Ray Diffraction XRD method was used to identify six PET polymers samples collected from different dump sites around the city, they were washed crushed and characterised and x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis was carried out on the samples for identification and the results were compared with literature. The diffractogram finger print patterns gener... Show More
