The total absorption coefficients for some selected organic compounds relevant to health physics, Triaflol BN (C3H4O2)n, Triaflol TN (C12H18O7)n, Kapton (C44H20O10)n, and Melinex (C10H8N4O4)nwere measured in the X-ray energy range from 13 keV up to about 40 keV using a collimator, high purity germanium detector with thin Be window and variable energy X-ray source. The measured values are compared with the theoretical ones obtained using the XCOM code. The agreement is generally good within a few percent. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
