We have found that these compounds of our invention when incorporated in gelatin layers at a concentration as little as 0.5% of the gelatin will effectively harden the gelatin so as to increase the melting point and resistance to swelling by Water of layers prepared therefrom. We have found that these hardeners have no detrimental eifect on the photographic properties of products in whose preparation they are used.
The following examples illustrate the use of compounds in accordance with the invention for gelatin hardening comparing same with the eifectiveness of bismaleimide hardeners.

Example 2 A slurry of 51.2 grams of N,N-tetramethylene-bismaleamic acid in 500 ml. of dichloromethane was stirred vigorously while a solution of 82.5 grams of commercial dicyclohexylcarbodiimide in ml. of dichloromethane Was added dropwise over a period of 50 minutes. The mixture was stirred for 24 hours, then cooled and the solids were removed by filtration. The crude residue was extracted with hot benzene, filtered and evaporated to dryness. The residue was slurried with cold ether and filtered. The crude, colorless crystalline solid was recrystallized With benzene-ether to give N,N'-tetramethylenebisisomaleimide having a melting point of 146.5 to 148.5 C.
The tetramethylene bisisomaleimide prepared in Example 2 was added to separate portions of high-speed silver bromoiodide emulsion which had been panchromatically sensitized with a cyanine dye, in the proportions indicated in the table. A sample of the emulsion without hardener was also taken. Each emulsion sample was coated onto a cellulose acetate film support at a coverage of 459 mg. of silver and 1040 mg. of gelatin per square foot. A sample of each film coating was exposed on an Eastman 1B sensitometer, processed for five mine; utes in Kodak DK-SO developer, fixed, Washed and dried with the following results:
