    D-23 where to buy?

    Hi

    I read a lot of good things about this develloper but I don't know where to buy it. I was thinking that it was obsolete since a lot of time.

    Are there some equivalent?

    Thank you

    I'm not sure it has ever been available commercially. It is easy to make...just 2 teaspoons of metol and four tablespoons of sodium sulfite dissolved in a quart (or a liter, doesn't really matter) of warm water.

    You either have to mix your own (very simple with just Metol and Sodium Sulfite) or buy it from Photograhers' Formulary as "Film developer 23".

    If you are based in Europe, try Saban Suvatlar.

    I got chemicals for Barry Thornton Two Bath from Saban...

    micro scales with 0.01gm resolution are cheap.

    book of developer options or web for formula.

    D23 and eg POTA are low contrast developers you can web all the gory details and try the most applicable to your needs.

    ID 11 and D76 are fine grain, the prepackaged kits different from the original formula to improve life as stock solution.

    D23 is markedly different.

    the cyclic hydrocarbons are nitrite gloves safety glasses and face mask hazchm keep in bathroom no kids never kitchen.

    I use ID68 cause I have skin problems, POTA ocassionally ditto for choice.
