The application of the anomalous X-ray scattering (AXS) technique has been tested for obtaining qualitative and quantitative powder diffraction analysis of a multi-component mixture having a relatively complicated chemical composition and containing two elements of nearly the same atomic number. The system selected for analysis consisted of three chemically different mixtures of Cu2S and CaFe204. The differential intensity pattern obtained from the measurements at two energies, 8.955 keV and

The results indicate that the AXS technique is promising in reducing the unsolved difficulties associated with the conventional X-ray powder diffraction method. The quantitative analysis of Cu2S in industrial copper smelting slags was also carried out by this new method.
