With a little influence from vovins tek and nomans tek. Straight to base, gonna use either NaOH or KOH to basify, then pull with naphtha, recrystallize with heptane.
I have a couple questions.
1) If I use a small mason jar (400ml at most) to evap before the freeze precip, how much would it smell? Could I contain the smell of the fan/jar in the closet? I live in an apartment so I don't want it to smell like a fuckin meth lab or some shit.
2) If you have used KOH instead of NaOH, how effective was it? Also how pure should it be, I can get 99% pure lye but only 90% pure KOH. Is that ok or too dirty? I feel like the naphtha wouldn't pull out the impurities but fuck if I know anything about chemistry lol.
3) Is it ok to use heptane for pulls or should I only use it for reX?
Also is there any advice from those more experiences to me? Thanks for the help my fellow chemists.
