    You can pervert HC-110 to get a pretty good developer as follows, if you want something close to Ilfosol-S.

    Add 50 grams of ascorbic or erythorbic acid to enough triethanolamine (TEA) to make 750 ml and heat enough to dissolve. Add 250 ml of HC110 concentrate. Dilute 1 + 50 for use with most films. It's good on HP5+.

    As a concentrated developer dissolved in organic solvents, I would expect Ilfosol-S to have a very long shelf life as a concentrate and a very short life when diluted with water to make the working solution.

    That is exactly what i have found.

    I would suggest starting with the times you would use for D-76 1:1. I haven't had much practical experience with it because of my penchant for trying different things. I have found that at 40 g/l with about 20 g/l sodium metaborate or about half that of carbonate, it makes a pretty good print developer.

    Seriously though....

    This is the stuff provided by the UofA for free in the developing room. I have nothing against it, except that it is rarely mentioned much when it comes to developing times. I ended up with some Arista.edu and was unable to come up with a decent developing time for it in the "literature" out there. Which was fine, I have a big jug of D-76 that I used, but hey, if the free stuff can work, I'll save the D-76 for my ortho work.

    So, what "IS" Ilfosol? And by that I mean, what common developer can I just compare it to and still get away with something printable when in doubt?
    Robert ---

    Do not confuse "ARISTA" (an Ilford product) with "ARISTA.EDU" (a FORTE product).
    .... most have very good results once they know the difference ... Good Luck!
