[alt-photo] Coating Silver Chloride - Non-Gelatin Based?

Hi all,

This is kind of part two of my previous Silver Chloride inquiry from a
little while back. I've been able to get hold of Ron Mowrey's book on
gelatin emulsion making which contained a wealth of valuable information on
making gelatin based emulsions including a Silver Chloride emulsion similar
in some characteristics to Azo. My question now is now concerned with
making non-gelatin based emulsions more similar to how one would print
Pt/Pl and other alt-processes. Can Silver Chloride and it's contrast agents
be mixed purely in solution like Pt/Pl and coated directly to paper without
making a gelatin emulsion like Mowrey teaches? I may be interested in hand
coating Silver Chloride in this manner at some point if it is possible.
Making a gelatin emulsion is deeper then I'd like to go but if I can coat
the paper directly like in Pt/Pl but with a Silver Chloride
solution/emulsion that may be worth experimenting with. Thanks!
