Chemical storage in solution?

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Craig Schroeder, Oct 2, 2005.

  1. Who has done any work on storing less stable dry chemicals in
    solutions of 99% alcohol, etc? I know that it is handy to have
    premixed benzotriazole to use as it is difficult to meter small
    amounts into individual batches of developers. Patrick Gainer's TEA
    and PG mixtures are known for extreme stability, too. I would be
    curious to be aimed at any info on the web or people's own experience
    in this. Additionally, does the alcohol tend to gas off quickly
    enough to become a non-issue in affecting the total chemistry when
    used this way or is it tied up in the water with limited surface area
    for evaporation?
