I am looking for examples of inorganic objects that have
deteriorated as a result of exposure to VOCs, specifically formic
and acetic acid. If you have identified acetate or formate compounds
in salts or corrosion on inorganic materials please send a short
description with photo for inclusion in the upcoming publication
that is sponsored by a FAIC/Samuel H. Kress Conservation Publication
Fellowship grant.

Related storage and conservation treatment information would also be
very valuable. In particular I am looking for examples of shell,
coral, stone, fossil, mineral, glass, and metals other than
copper/copper alloys. I am more than willing to apply for copyright
permissions if required.
