Eric, I haven't forgotten about the Rodinal formula. I've saved a number of posts from rec.photo.darkroom especially from Michael Gudzinowicz and when I've tidied them up I'll post it.

The upshot of the posts is that Agfa altered Rodinal in, I think, the 1960s. The amount of p-aminophenol was reduced and the pH was increased to compensate. p-aminophenol is not an expensive chemical, but sodium/potassium hydroxide is much cheaper!   Reminiscences of Agfa Viradon having its only expensive ingredient removed also (selenium)!

This was how PF listed it on the brown bottle; including CAS #. I don't have my formulas here at home. If you have it John, that would be great.

Aminophenol (not the hydrochloride) is readily available, and can be used for Rodinal with some adjustments to the formula. I can look it up if you're interested.
