The article presents the results of studies on the method of sensibilizing dactyloscopic traces directly from the gaseous phase. The detection of dactyloscopic traces on absorbtive surfaces requires specific revealing methods, whose essential aspect is the need to deliver reagent to the place of occurrence of the corresponding component of trace forming substance. In practice, for many years, various types of solutions have been used for this purpose, such as DFO, ninhydrin and 1,2-indanedione. Within...
