    Does anyone know of a supplier for Glycin in the UK?

    No Glycin on the Silverprint list?

    Try Monochrom. In Germany, but still EU: www.monochrom.com

    Rayco may be able to help you as I believe they are linked to a chemist otherwise try Aldrich in Gillingham, Dorset (they have a website) or Scientific & Chemical Supplies Ltd, Bilston, West Midlands, phone 01902-402402.

    If you're buying from a non-photographic supplier, make sure you get the right chemical. "Glycin" is not the correct scientific name; ordering that could get you a completely different (and utterly useless) chemical!

    I can endorse that advice, I did order some from a non-photographic supplier and got a useless and expensive chemical.

    Since my last post, I have dug out my Rayco catalogue (phone01226-744594) and although it is dated November 2001, there is no reason why they should not be able to help. Glycin is listed in their special chemicals.
