Do you know the relationship between this one and why it must depend on other one, such as C-14?

If you want to test the reliability of a dating method, naturally you want to test it on objects of a known date. In the case of racemization, that would involve testing it on objects which have been dated historically (for example a book which is known to have been published in a particular year); or against objects which have been dated by dendrochronology; or against objects which have been carbon-dated. For the tests to be meaningful, the dating methods you're testing it against must be reliable.

How does that solve the overlapping that are in the AAR testing itself within the error bound?

I'm afraid I don't understand the question.

Re: Don't do it!
You racemizatist!!!

It seems that opinion on this subject is polarized.
