Summary of the research project
Eco-friendly bags are bags manufactured using materials which are environmentally friendly. In recent years, fingermark development techniques have seen a decline in the quality of marks developed from such surfaces and this could be associated with the “new” types of bags. This research is focused on understanding the chemical interactions between eco-friendly bags and fingermark development techniques but also understanding the surface chemistry which may be impacting on fingermark development techniques.
