It has been recommended to me as I have a print in which my smallest dilution of potassium chlorate is having too great an effect on some delicate highlights.

what are you doing about the decay of this compound?

I'm not sure what you mean by this?

However, the dilution is so small, what are you doing about the decay of this compound? Jon, I am wonder where you are using this (PT/PD) printing presumably. Are you looking to keep the fog threshold up a touch?

Hi list,

Can anyone help me figure out the following dilution? I have a solution that is 10% potassium chlorate. I have in the past diluted this down to 5% and 1% and a 1/2% solutions. I rarely use any and cannot find my notes for making the dilutions.

I now want to make a tiny dilution, like 0.125%, or similar, just so there is a presence of potassium chlorate in the sensitiser. Could someone help me get there from the 10% start?
