All done, but I can't see how 22dn/22ac works. Can anyone explain, without giving the game away yet on the theme?

Still trying to parse it Peterm, a cleverer puzzle than I realised at first.

Not sure of my parsing at 9A...is it an anag(or container of)of "a hand" and small thing often described as free?

Re 22/22 Can't work it out completely, but I think 'acid' does not refer to one normally found in a school lab! which kind of fits n'est-ce pas?

ixion - for 9ac, the outer letters of five and 30dn give you the answer.

9A - discontentedly is a pun - apply it to five and the answer to 30

In 22, I suppose it's simply when the initial letters of "litmus paper" replaced "acid".

Thanks prospero...

Peterm I think 22/22 is also a pun...abbreviating the new replacement for the old.
