Abstract

FILMED electron microscope grids, once exposed to the electron beam, cannot be cleaned by any of the usual solvents. The nitrocellulose is altered so as to become insoluble in amyl acetate even after prolonged boiling, and examination of the grid in the electron microscope still shows the tell-tale scraps of film in the corners of the squares.
