    - Sulphur distribution in steel sample can be revealed by using chemical method known as sulphur printing.

    - Photographic silver bromide paper is used for this purpose. In this process, this paper is soaked in 2% sulphuric acid. Later the paper is removed from acid bath and is held vertical to drain out the excess acid.

    - This paper is then laid down the test specimen and the bubbles are removed so that they have intimate contact.

    - A pattern of dark brown is obtained when sulphides on steel surface react with acid giving hydrogen sulphide which reacts with silver bromide on this paper.
