The voltammetry of microparticles, an electrochemical technique providing information on the composition of archaeological materials using an essentially non invasive analysis [1,2] was previously applied for dating lead-based materials [3,4]. It is described the application of this methodology for dating copper-based archaeological materials based on a theoretical model for long term metal corrosion [5]. Dating is based on the measurement of the voltammetric signals of cuprite and tenorite formed as a corrosion products in artifacts submitted to aging in atmospheric environments with no exigent corroding conditions. Assuming that the composition and conditions ...
