There is a strong UV fluorescence in both samples, which indicates optical brightening agents. In the small punch outs, significant fluorescence differences were not detected. It could not be determined if these samples were effected by contact with UV light, but long exposure to UV light has been known to lower the whiteness of paper. A noticeable particulate material was observed on one side of the punch outs. This particulate may also affect the UV fluorescence of paper. The main inorganic substance in these particulates was found to be iron. The EDS spectra are enclosed. The nature of this material implies contact on one surface of the papers. Spot tests show the same consistent reactions for starch and pH levels between the two samples. The fiber content of the two vials is consistent with coming from the same mill and production run.
