Raman spectroscopic data derived from Calluna vulgaris charcoals, experimentally generated across a range of natural wildfire temperatures

Theurer, Thomas; Muirhead, David; Jolley, David; Mauquoy, Dmitri

This data has been derived from deconvolved Raman spectra, utilising two first order bands - D (Disordered) and G (Graphitic). Spectra were collected from experimentally pyrolysed charcoals, made from Calluna vulgaris (Ling Heather) separated into three main components; stem, root and flower. For each component at 250, 400, 600 and 800 degrees centigrade respectively, 5 charcoal samples (A, B, C, D, E) were analysed. Following deconvolution, median values for each spectra were produced. These correspond to parameters derived from the Raman data, including D- and G-band width (FWHM), intensity (ID/IG or 'R1') and area (AD/AG) ratios, band separation (G-D or 'RBS'), and band width ratios (D-FWHM/G-FWHM). All parameters have been compiled for each component material, and displayed graphically within this dataset.
