A method is presented for the determination of carbon in solid hydrocarbons using the intensity ratio of incoherent to coherent scattering of x-rays. The method is very rapid with precision at the 95% confidence level of about ±0.3%. The minimum sample weight necessary is 0.2 g. Analysis of samples by the x-ray method shows good agreement with values obtained by microcombustion. Finally a general comparison between different methods for carbon determination in solid hydrocarbons is discussed.
