Hmm. And if there's no air in the bottle, shaking is far less effective. Everything is more complicated than first appearances. And that's mostly what keeps us engineers employed.

Here's another question:
We saw earlier in this thread that a concentrate consisting of PG+SodiumMetaborate+AscorbicAcid+DimezoneS crystallizes. That developer behaved exactly like XTOL, so I want to use it. So my question is: Can another solvent be used instead of PG? How about glycerine? Or ethylene glycol? Anything else?
