Re: best archival adhesive

Thymol was used in the past to kill mold (like a moldy book or records would
go in a thymol chamber).  But thymol fumes off so that there is no residual
effect--one reason that thymol chambers are no longer used.  Wouldn't the
same thing happen with thymol in paste?  Is thymol really staying around to
deter bugs or to prevent anything in the pasted paper?
