    Glycin sold anywhere other than photographer's formulary?

    I buy my chemicals from Artcraft which does not carry (nor will get) Glycin. Formulary's $hipping is sky high. Anywhere else to get it?

    It all comes from the Formulary. Nobody else makes it except some high school student in Europe that we haven't heard from in a while.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.

    Sadly Glycin is what is called an orphan chemical along with the developing agents Atomal and chlorohydroquinone. They are orpahns because no one makes them commercially any more. Their one and only use was as developing agents and when the demand diminished all production ceased. The only one of the three that was irreplaceable was the chlorohydroquine which was a fine grain developing agent used in several warm tone paper developers and Ethol's UFG film developer. There is no real substitute.

    Glycin was a trade name for p-hydroxyphenylglycine and is usually capitalized to distinguish it from the amino acid glycine. Its IUPAC name is 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)aminoacetic acid and its CAS number is 122-87-2. Glycin is related to Metol both being N-sunstituted p-aminophenols. They behave very similarly as developing agents. But due to having a lower redox potential Glycin is slower in its action.

    Some day hopefully in my lifetime, some smart individual will come up with a way to grind up and boil computers and digital cameras to get the developing chemicals out of them.

    I suppose the shipping costs EU-US are as high as US-EU... too bad

    Mike has been threatening to have it made in England..He won't buy from formulary. If enough people pester him about it, he might get some made.

    I'm puzzled. I lb from Formulary is $79. Shipping is $20.20 to Texas. What is the problem?
