I can try to change City Hall! If enough of us work at it, it'll happen.
Bloody ridiculous about incandescent light bulbs. It's all this nonsense about global warming. The US isn't seeing much global warming at the moment.
If I can buy 10kg of HEAP, I think I will. Australian Customs haven't heard of it and couldn't comment on whether it will be let in our not. - We'll see. I think that, just like those brave souls who've resuscitated "Autochrome" even though the work must have been phenomenal, I can't let Promicrol die off without a really good fight.
I will beat City Hall.

The new 'Promicrol'?

Postby irivlin » Mon Jun 12, 2017 2:56 pm

The new Promicrol is nothing *remotely* like the original stuff.
The long and the short of it is that without HEAP sulphate, Promicrol is not possible. I've been in touch with scores of Chinese companies. They all say they can make it and will sell me a sample for $1000. They must think we are all stupid.
If we can find a reputable firm thst can make a pure HEAP sulphate (and glycin - not glycine..) thenPromicrol will rise from the ashes again.
We just need to find the right chemical firm. (Or a very enthusiastic amateur).
