Variation on haryanto's question, with preliminaries: I am running low on Potassium Dichromate, but I have loads of Ammonium Dichromate. Can I substitute one for the other?

Also, are there any suitable substitutes for the H2SO4?

Ian, does the bleaching time vary much with different emulsions? I've tried persulfate bleaching on Tmax100, for instance, and it seems to have almost zero effect and on FP4 it's really quick..Thanks..Evan Clarke

Yes there can be variations, it's sometimes quite noticeable, there's just too many variables try all combinations and Persulphates not as strong. The reason for the Dichromate bleach is critical because it stains as well as bleaches.

Thanks Ian, It's sort of funny, I got on to this persulfate thing and decided I would give it a whirl. The first neg was Tmax 100 and I used a little white tray on a light table so I could watch it. I watched and watched and watched, almost zero effect. I made another batch and tried an FP4 neg, ready to watch it too and it literally disappeared before I could snatch it from the tray!!! I had to think about that for a while before I went back to the well...EC

There's no H2SO4 used in this intensifier.

Oops! I just made a substitution of my own! No wonder I have such problems in the lab.
Let's try this again.... Any suitable substitutes for HCl?

i've try it, it seem dont like selenium which intensifier negative and raise contrast,
Ilford IIN-3 Chromium Intensifier very good for underdeveloped negative and intensifier it in all range density so contrast just litlle rise, hardening is a must otherwise it's easily scracth
thanks Ian, very usefull
