Photographic plates were prepared by coating an emulsion consisting of mercurous acrylate, polyvinyl alcohol and water on glass plates. They were found to be sensitive to light ranging from 250 nm to 340 nm. A dark brown image with density ca. 0.6 above the fog was formed by a printing-out process. The latent image could be amplified with the reducing developers such as hydroquinone or metol. Image formation was ascribed to metallic mercury which was isolated by photoreduction and/or reduction of mercurous ion.
