Notes: A Tannic Acid-Ferric Chloride-Toluidine Blue Stain for Wood Amyloplasts Embedded in Epoxy Resin
Abstract:Starch of amyloplasts in wood can be permanently stained dark blue by treating epoxy sections of wood with a sequence of tannic acid, ferric chloride, and toluidine blue. This technique improves upon those currently available for permanently staining amyloplasts of wood. Forest Sci. 24:49-51.
