    Year ago I was make some experiments with glycin/catechol developers. Both of this dev.agents working very good without agitation (stand). If they use as single dev.agent - we have sharp, but grainly result and loss 1 stop of film speed. Month ago I was continue working with this agents and found that they superadditive. Using glycin with catechol together dramatically decrease grain and develop film to default speed (no loss 1 stop).
