Ballpoint ink dating heating
The research shows that volatile and non-volatile ink compounds can be efficiently analyzed by using the combined methods of chromatography and mass-spectrometry.
However, 2-ethylhexanal is completely degraded only as a result of natural ageing in the sunlight.

Given the fact that the ink composition includes colourless and volatile compounds, the use of the profile of the dyes in the study of ink is not enough.
Also, without additional research and evaluation, stability and the ability of various dyes to degrade into other dyes undermines the objectivity of the results obtained only by studying the profile of dyes.
