Various chemical and electrolytic separation methods were investigated in an attempt to separate the in­clusions in Armco ingot iron. Residues obtained were X-rayed for identification purposes. The microstruc­tures of this iron were studied with the object of de­termining the relative sizes, locations, and possible compositions of the inclusions.
