Major, minor and trace element data, hitherto unpublished, are given for Apollo 14 samples 14163, 14259, 14303, 14305 and 14306, with brief details of the analytical procedures used. As found previously for the Apollo 11 and 12 samples, volatile constituents such as water, fluorine and carbon dioxide are present in very low concentrations, but the Apollo 14 samples are characterised by much higher contents of sodium, potassium and phosphorus. The values for TiO2continue the downward trend previously noted. © 1973.
