I didn't say that.

Mees and James don't comment on Metol + Ascorbate superadditivity AFAIK, nor has Haist, but my memory may be faulty. There was so much done with HQ + Metol that that is what I remember. I do know that we used an EAA (Elon (Metol) Ascorbic Acid) developer for research purposes, and I believe that the formula is in Mees and James, if not Haist.
