Fascinating.... what more can you say about these exotic halides? 20 words or less will do (or more if you please!).

It's sad that knowledge will be quite literally lost because of the way in which our culture is organized. EK & Fuji have taken the making of photographic emulsions to nearly theoretical limits of perfection, wouldn't you agree? And yet, due to corporate interests & proprietary knowledge, that information will die with these companies. When it's all said and done (like 100 years from now), will this information be accessible at all?
