In addition to the benzene ring compounds Pyrogallol and Catechol (also called Pyrocatechin and Pyrocatechol) there is Hydroquinone, which is a benzene ring compound that is chemically and functionally very similar to Catechol. Sodium or Potassium Sulfites in sufficient concentration in the developing solution will prevent or retard stain formation and tanning with any of these "Pyro" developing agents.

In my own direct experience, roll and sheet films that work well with staining and tanning (i.e. Pyro) developers include: Ilford Pan F+, Ilford Delta 100 and 400, Ilford HP5, Kodak TMAX 100 and 400, Kodak Tri-X, Fuji Acros, Efke 100 and 400, J&C Classic 200 and 400.

I prefer Sandy King's Pyrocat-HD formulation which I mix myself "from scratch."
