Electron emission spectroscopy offers considerable promise as an analytical technique for chemical determinations. In this work, the electron-binding energy of several silicon compounds that potentially occur in respirable coal dust was measured. The preliminary data demonstrate the potential of electron spectroscopy to chemically characterize silicon and other potentially harmful constituents such as mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc., directly on respirable mine dust and the parent coal samples.
