I found Rudefous post at articles , here it is .
The MSDS and many other descriptions I found online claim that 2,3,6-trimethyl-quinoxaline are used by Ilford. This substance, however, seems to be difficult to get, at least Sigma Aldrich doesn't seem to carry it. The Ciba patent mentions that very good results are obtained if a mix of two catalysts are used which have different redox potential, and based on that patent a combo of 2,3-dimethyl-quinoxaline and 2-hydroxy-3,6,7-trimethylquinoxaline could be very promising. I have, unfortunately not delved into this deeply enough, but the Ciba patent does mention patents which could provide useful recipes.
