  1. Thanks for the help. I what to try any isolate as many of the elements as I can but $20 pound sounds tempting considering I'm planing on buying 100 g of the oxide for $59 NZD! So will dissolving the oxide 60 % nitric acid and adding magnesium/zinc powder ppt. the bismuth? I've had some experience with molten NaOH and it wasn't the most friendly of chemicals, even washing up was pretty dodgy
  2. I'm thinking about getting some bismuth trioxide and trying to turn it into elemental bismuth (trying to start a element collection). Would this be very hard? Is there anyone out there that can put me on the right track for going about this? Thanks for any help.
  3. Yea that's true. Do you no about using FeSO4 to chelate the NO? I'm quite interested in making some of that product. What would be formed?
  4. If making N2O from ammonium nitrate would there be much impurity? And wouldn't there be very little or no other oxides other than NO and N2O after bubbling through basic H2O?
  5. I'm planning on making some nitrous oxide and was wondering about how to go about removing nitric oxide impurity. On wiki is states that bubbling the gas through a basic solution followed by acid then basic again should remove most of the nitric oxide. Does anyone have any idea on what kinds of concentrations should be used? Also it says that FeSO4 can be used to chelate the NO. Would the FeSO4 be desolved in the basic solution and Fe(NO)x ppt. out? One more question, I read on another thread that N2O is easily absorbed into water, if the basic and acidic solutions are at room temperature would there be any significant loss of N2O into solution? wiki link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N2O#Manufacture Thanks for any help.
  6. My favorite would have to be Phosphorus, because of all the different allotrope's. Its like 7 different elements in one
  7. Its 98.3% pure. What kind of vessel would you suggest to use? Would I be able to make elemental Mn and Cr using a thermite reaction with MnO2 and Cr2O3? And what would be the easiest way to get elemental Sr from SrCO3?
  8. Oh sorry I meant to say I was using an ethanol flame to melt it. Yea I think what happened is the NaOH must of reacted with the glass like you said.
  9. Thanks Gilded I'll try some of those. I have very little lab equipment just a few flasks test tubes and Bunsen tripod gauze. The other day I made some recrystallized rocket fuel using glucose syrup, sugar, KNO3 and a little Fe2O3, it worked quite well. > I just tried to melt some NaOH using ethanol but it turned into a black/brown sludge and a gas evolved. Would this be because the flame was too hot > bp?
  10. Hi, I've recently started to accumulate different chemicals (trying to make a small lab at home) and I was wondering if anyone could tell me some interesting reactions I could do with the stuff I got. Here is what I have so far.. NaOH KMnO4 KNO3 KOH NaHSO4 C S Fe2O3 Al Powder Glycerol and SrCO3 I'm also getting some MnO2 and Cr2O3. I've made some thermite and a little black powder but thats all so far. I was wondering If I could make some different chemicals from what I have that would be useful.
