SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE USE OF ENZYMES IN PAPER CONSERVATION
Pia C. DeSantis
ABSTRACT—A review of the conservation and enzymology literature is offered in order to characterize the use of proteolytic and starch digesting enzymes in paper conservation. Results from experiments designed to test the effects of enzymes on aged papers are presented. A protease new to the conservation field was used in these tests.
