Subject: Ethylene glycol monosalicylate

Ethylene glycol monosalicylate

From: Alan Hawk <alan.j.hawk.civ<-a>

We have a booklet that soaked in ethylene glycol monosalicylate.
Both the monosalicylate and the booklet were captured from the Viet
Cong during the Vietnam War.

Is there a way to either remove the ethylene glycol monosalicylate
from the paper or neutralize or would it be best to copy the
document and destroy the original?
