Quick note on a typo in post #8. It's 1966, not 1996.
It's an excellent article. The full citation is: T.T. Hill, "Laboratory Scale Photographic Emulsion Technique," J. Chem. Educ., 43, 492 (September 1966).
The SPSE Handbook that Jason mentions is invaluable. Its full name is:
SPSE Handbook of Photographic Science and Engineering. Edited by Woodlief Thomas, Jr. (a.k.a. "Woody" Thomas), 1973.
(also: "EK" is insider speak for Eastman Kodak)
