    Abstract

    Latent fingerprints on various items were developed by exposing them to fumes obtained by heating the solid polymer, polycyanoacrylate. The results were comparable in quality to those obtained by the regular Super Glue® technique, based on the liquid cyanoacrylate monomer which is harder to handle. Without heating, the development process required much longer periods of time. Two simple devices have been constructed that use the new technique.
