So has a chemical analysis ever been done on any of the inks?

Not so far, but that may not actually be a bad thing - it's only with the advent of the sidfiles that we're perhaps starting to ask the right questions about what such an analysis might try to resolve.

And if not, what are the odds of one being done if/when the MS is sent for conservation?

Anything as powerful as Raman spectroscopy would seem unlikely ATM, but you never know. :-) Bear in mind that nobody wants to destroy any of it in the process...

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
