Ninhydrin Development

Ninhydrin reacts with amino acids to produce a purple reaction product called “Rhuemann’s Purple”. It is useful on porous surfaces—especially paper. Development time is up to 10 days, but may be accelerated through the application of heat and humidity. Use ninhydrin after iodine and before silver nitrate. Ninhydrin is not useful on items which have been exposed to water.
