    I'm having trouble locating a local source in Canada for concentrated
    sulfuric acid (98%) my photo chem supplier no longer carries it. Can the
    reversal bath formula R21-A be adjusted easily to use lower concentration
    products ie. automotive battery acid (33%)? Will the ph shift be a problem?

    I may be wrong but if you use 98/33 (roughly 3 times) more acid at 33%
    to replace the original 98% quantity and still keep the final volume,
    you should have the same final concentration of sulfuric acid in your

    I don't know if the automotive battery acid is pure enough for a
    photographic use but I suppose it is.
