This writer chose the bushing-in-the-side method with mixed results-the temperature indication worked great but the boiling acid eats the thermometers and the bushing weld creates a weak point which the acid attacks and eats through after only three reactions. Use Teflon tape to seal all threads, including the gas fittings. Follow this with 4000g of catalytic iron, 3400g 20mol of 1-phenyl- 2-nitropropene and 40-50g of ferric chloride. Without the condenser, the aqua regia will quickly boil off without dissolving much platinum. Make sure the hydrogen gas valve is closed and the vacuum valve with the nipple is open. Sedit is a major contributer and promoter for The Vespiary.
Place a 1000ml Pyrex beaker on the stirring hotplate. This will improve one's precision in controlling the oven temperature in the event one should desire to experiment, which this writer encourages. Add a layer of rock salt on top of the ice to further reduce the temperature. So I can make an alcohol from an alkene. In fact, the condenser is the limiting factor in this reaction, otherwise one would use a 22-liter setup and double the volume. I think most people can cook meth, if they follow a recipe.
So now I am right here on the flow sheet. Now that we have a bearing and driveshaft, we must design a bracket that will hold our gearmotor firmly in line with the bearing and driveshaft. When you're trying to synthesize one molecule from another molecule you have to know the reactions that connect those different functional groups together. Look for any brown or black discoloration as a sign of excess heat. One can easily perform 25-30 mole reactions using a 5 gallon paint shaker for agitation.
Or one can use a stainless pot either plain or Teflon coated. Do this four times to insure all the nitrate is dissolved and removed. Alternatively, one can pour the hot methamphetamine hydrochloride into a 5-gal plastic bucket containing 4. Stop adding acid when the pH reaches 3. There should be room for the stirbar to turn without touching the coins.
The catalyst will begin to turn from brown to black in color. Methamphetamine and regular amphetamine were long thought to be strictly human-synthesized, but Acacia trees contain these and numerous other psychoactive compounds e. Synthesis of Ketones From Esters Using The Gilman Reagent 7. The temperature will slowly climb over a period of 2. The Corningware dishes are cheap, disposable, and can be purchased anywhere. First of all, this catalyst must be pre-reduced in distilled water, not ethanol.
Wrap the paint can with pipe insulation and duct tape. He just encourages us to learn and explore. Before one can proceed, one must do some preparatory work to make things go smoothly. It is not like there is any chemistry discussion going on anyway. This writer attached a mounting handle but later discovered that it is much easier to simply set it on a table or bench of the proper height. Without the insulation, the dry ice must be replenished at intervals short enough to be distracting.
A generic version became available in April, 2010. Use MathJax to format equations. I'm going to make that alkene from an alkyne. Which one do I want? The more surface area one can create, the better the chances are of our three reactants meeting and making meth. A skilled chemist like Walt understands the chemistry allowing him to alter or adapt the synthesis as necessary. Empty the product into a large cake tray and let the acetone evaporate in the fume cabinet for a day or two, separating it as it dries.
Adjust the vacuum using the bleeder valve so that the meth base distills over at 95-105°C. In addition to the dry ice condenser, we will need to circulate ice water through a reflux condenser in order to condense out any water vapor that may accompany the methylamine gas. And that'll be acetylene, actually, all right? Its equilibrium is shifted in favor of the decomposition by the reaction of hydrogen with organic compounds iodoephedrine in this case in the reduction, but it can also be affected by removal of iodine. And I take another molecule of acetylene and to that, I add sodium amide. These impurities are 1-benzyl-3-methylnaphthalene and 1,3-dimethyl-2-phenylnaphthalene.
