aldevo said:Yup - there is magic pixie dust in Microdol-X in the form of a benzophone compund that acts as an anti-silvering agent. This is designed to suppress some of the solvent action that would otherwise cost you even more film speed and possibly induce dichroic fog.
I'd like a technical reference or some mass spectrometer results, please. The current Kodak MSDS (and previous ones) shows no hint of a benzophone. The current MSDS does show boric anhydride.
