Found it on Sigma-Aldritch's site as a photographic chemical
"N-Ethyl-N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-p-phenylenediamine sulfate salt monohydrate"
Found some info on it here - http://www.chemicalbook.com/ProductC...4300409_EN.htm
Can anybody shed some light on this?
Given it's a related ppd.. I assume its a newer process/formula for colour?
It's rather relatively inexpensive on Sigma Aldritch's site compared to the price they sell other stuff for.
I think it should be a developing agent.
This appears to be CD-4 used in the C-41 process. That number (CD-32) is meaningless as the EK CD numbering system stops at CD-6.
CD 32 is a color developing agent used in some older color processes. In Germany (where I’m from) it was known as T-32 by Agfa and ORWO and used in paper developers quite a time ago (Agfa/Orwocolor 112). Another Synonym is Droxychrome (May & Baker).
As far as I know it can be used as a fine grain BW developing agent in conjunction with glycine too, but I doubt it will be worth the hassle…
Regards from Germany,
The chemical shown in the reference is CD-4 however, and not an earlier developing agent. Early developing agents from Agfa and ORWO included a Sulfonic acid at the end of the chain rather than a hydroxy group. There were several of these with different names rather than numbers. One name in use for CD4 was Dicolamine, IIRC.

Not sure about the given reference, but for sure T-32 alias cd32 existed.
Agfa called it “Äthyl-Oxyäthyl-paraphenylendiaminsulfat" in it’s formulations from about 1960 (I only have fragments).
After some research I found this cas no.: 4327-84-8
This looks pretty close; tempted me to assume its T-32
I stumbled some time ago over this stuff in order to process old material
This is bit more contemporal (but german)
T32 is/was N-Ethyl-, N-Hydroxyethyl-p-Phenylendiamin sulfat in west Germany.
N-Ethyl-N-ß-oxyethyl-p-phenylen-diaminsulfat was the east german analoge, seems to be even closer to the older Agfa formulation (or may look so because of the different typology )

You are correct and I erred! This is NOT CD-4.
CD-4 has a methyl group on the ring. I missed that trying to decipher the structure which is distorted on my screen. No excuse there, just a pure error. This developer was never numerically placed by EK in its CD sequence and never used in any process by EK. It was purely a European material.
Apologies to all.
Thank you very much for clearing this up, but there is absolutely no need to apologize.
You are such a great tutor, praise you
But dammed, the structure formulas’ look like twins, things like this small methyl group separated the Agfa and Kodak Universe? This is somehow funny…
Yes, the Methyl group close to the free amino group is a Kodak invention. It causes the dye that forms to be twisted out of coplanarity with the benzene ring, thus shifting the hue and improving dye stability by preventing easy attack on a non-planar bond with steric hindrance. (For those that didn't get the explanation, Kodak scientists discovered that blocking the dye with an extra "thingie" improved it!)
And, Stefan, when I goof, I goof and owe you a correction and an apology.
Up to CD-6? I saw a patent reference up to CD-11 ( http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/54...scription.html )
So why is there a near identical chemical much lower on the CAS index - http://www.chemicalbook.com/ProductC...9348048_EN.htm
CD-32 (C10H20N2O6S) vs This one (C10H18N2O5S).
Sorry, my chemistry knowledge is much greater than high school level, and I find some of this a bit odd when chasing down possibilities.
