Three methods for scattering and absorption measurements were compared for correlation; Kubelka-Munk, 4pi and an in transmission compartment scattering measurement method. The results indicated highest correlation between the 4pi and Kubelka-Munk absorption measurements. The 4pi and Kubelka-Munk scattering measurements had the highest correlation for scattering, and almost no correlation was found between Kubelka-Munk and in transmission compartment scattering measurements.
