My question is, if TY has a consistently better error rate than Mitsui, is there any reason for me to use Mitsui at all? I know the arguments for and against phthalocyanine. What do you all say?
With those results, I see no advantage to Mitsui (or, presumably, MAM-A)
and therefore no reason to use them. One exception would be storage for
generations or in a corrosive environment where, perhaps, gold
metallizing would be preferable to that in the T-Y.
Or not. Data on relative life expectancy are all but impossible to find.
Theoretically, gold may be superior, but if it doesn't matter in use,
theory is of only theoretical interest.
