Abstract
The compound tris(2,2'-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) chloride hexahydrate is suitable for laser detection of latent fingerprints on difficult surfaces such as wood and masking tape, as well as surfaces such as polyethylene, metal, etc. The fingerprint treatment can Involve either dusting with powder blended with this compound or by solution staining. The compound displays a strong d-n phosphorescence with a lifetime of about 10-6 and is thus very well suited for time-resolved imaging to suppress background fluorescence.
