    There are references on the web to people using Amidol that was originally bottled in 1906 (Brett Weston) - also references to staining from modern chinese Amidol which might be related to the prescence of small amounts of PPD, which is not a problem for its main use in hair dye. But as you say the e-bay purchase may be a gamble.

    Last year, I've had no problems buying Amidol from Photographer's Formulary, shipped to Ireland, which is still in EU.

    Edit: oops. I see they stopped doing that, according to the web site, at least... Things never stay the same, I suppose. Still, you can get their Amidol developer for paper, which does not seem to have any shipping restrictions. There would be some unmixed Amidol in it.

    Get hold of Michael Smith. He will ship to Europe. http://michaelandpaula.com/mp/AzoFor...ID=12779&CID=5 His is Chinese amidol, which is great developer if you use it properly. Complaints about excessive staining or turning the prints pink are the results of either user error or use of the wrong paper. Chinese amidol will not turn Azo, Lodima or Ilford Mutligrade papers pink if you use a sodium thiosulfate fixer. You will need potassium bromide, sodium sulfite and citric acid to make a working solution for developing prints. You will also need plain hypo and sodium bisulfite to use as fixer. I don't know about Michael's price, but amidol is expensive. I'm used to paying $200/lb. (454 grams) to Artcraft.
    Michael's formulae are here: http://michaelandpaula.com/mp/Azo_Formulas.html

    Their price (505 zl. / 250 grams) works out to about $265/lb. if you're converting the zloty at $0.29. Not bad. How's the quality?

    Dear all,
    I just would like to let you know, that 250g of Amidol as well as Phenidone (much cheaper that in my hometown) and some other stuff is on the way to me from Polish company Keten chemicals. We made a deal on Friday midnight!!! According to Lukasz from Keten Amidol isn't Chinese... I'll try it with Efke Emaks and Fomabrom during the next couple of weeks...
