It is shown how the rates of change of specific turbidity with the wavelength of light can be used to determine the particle sizes of silica and alumina pigments and also to determine the complete particle size distribution of titanium dioxide pigments, anatase and rutile, on the assumption that these materials distribute themselves log-normally. The method developed has the advantage that prior knowledge of the pigment concentration in the suspension is not required.
