Abstract

Solutions were formulated by dissolving 3,7-dibromophenothiazin-5-ium perbromide in primary and secondary alcohols with pyridine as base. These solutions were used as dips for the enhancement of latent fingerprints. Treatment of 3,7-dibromophenothiazin-5-ium perbromide with cyclohexene or sodium sulfite gave 3,7-dibromophenothiazine.
