Which material requires the smallest amount for radiocarbon dating?
Any organic material that is available in sufficient quantity can be prepared for radiocarbon dating. Modern AMS (accelerator mass spectroscopy) methods require tiny amounts, about 50 mg. AMS technology has allowed us to date very small
