    for those who may still be using film, Agfa as we know is gone but Rodinal's
    original formula lives on as ORWO RO9, and as the rebadged Rollei RO9 (made
    by ORWO) - so it can still be got :)


    not that i've seen anyone selling them here.

    hwever, Vanbar still list 500ml Rodinal for $18.50
    http://www.vanbar.com.au/catalogue/...&end=1&Item1=CHEMISTRY&Item2=B^[email protected]&Item3=FILM

    finally for anyone who makes their own devs, the para-aminophenol HCL
    component can be made by using panadol.

    30 tablets @ 500 mg generic panadol (crushed)
    50 g sodium sulphite;
    20 g sodium hydroxide
    water to make 250 ml


    Start with about 100ml cold ater and add the sodium hydroxide.
    Stir in the panadol and sulphite
    stire in the panadol
    seal it and let stand for at least 24 hours; activity may
    continue increasing (as the reaction converting acetaminophen to
    p-aminophenol proceeds) for up to 48 hours from mixing.

    enjoy
