Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $82,820)

The objective of this award is to improve the liquid-to-liquid chemical reaction between the CAE monomer and test catalysts thereby increasing the volume of micro-crystalline vapors generated to improve the development of fingerprints (via further polymerization). Alternative catalysts such as potassium acetate, ammonium hydroxide, glacial acetic acid, and linoleic acid as well as catalysts in mineral oil will be used in preliminary testing. Additionally, this project will investigate the incorporation of sublimation dyes to render a colored polymer. These results will be used to improve the NIJ-sponsored Vapor Wand Project.
