Radiocarbon dating individual amino acids is not recommended unless necessary as in the case of old bone samples where the presence of even small levels. The extent of amino acid racemization was determined by using fluorescent. 1980 Amino acid bone dating a feasibility study, South San. The potential of the time-dependent amino acid racemisation reaction as a method of. numeric dating, and a particularly large literature has emerged on the. termining the D- and L-amino acid contents in samples of known age,. We have utilised this method very successfully for dating fossil bone samples. It is possible, however, that single amino acids found in bone have multiple. Ho and co-workers first suggested isolating and dating hydroxyproline (HYP). In unrelated areas, amino-acid racemisation has given useful information on the age of art specimens (e.g. dating of oil paintings through study of the.
