Dear pdeeh,

NO ITS ABSOLUTELY NOT POSSIBLE, DO NOT ATTEMPT IT....

It is possible to remove the emulsion by soaking, but it has no inherent strength whatsoever and will break up and be lost forever.

I understand that the negatives are exposed, before even cleaning them I advise you print the images ( or contact print them ) onto photo paper to preserve the image.
