Abstract: For countable inductive limits of Fréchet spaces ($(LF)$-spaces) the property of being weakly acyclic in the sense of Palamodov (or, equivalently, having condition $(M_{0})$ in the terminology of Retakh) is useful to avoid some important pathologies and in relation to the problem of well-located subspaces. In this note we consider if weak acyclicity is enough for a $(LF)$-space $E:= \operatorname {ind} E_{n}$ to ensure that its strong dual is canonically homeomorphic to the projective limit of the strong duals of the spaces $E_{n}$. First we give an elementary proof of a known result by Vogt and obtain that the answer to this question is positive if the steps $E_{n}$ are distinguished or weakly sequentially complete. Then we construct a weakly acyclic $(LF)$-space for which the answer is negative.
