Diatomaceous earth


Ok, so now I know what it is, after some
research. However (and this is the embarrassing part): I don't know the Swedish
word for it and can therefore not find a local
supplier. No, I don't have a dictionary ---
normally I don't need one.

Any Swedes out there that feel inclined to
come to my rescue, dictionary in hand? =)

Danish is fine as well, I live close and speak
Danish...

What are you looking for?

Swedes are more inclined to supply a cyanide
product than any other chemical product.

t is the laws that they are not allowed to
supply certain chemicals.Especially ones
that can be created in a general lab with
novice experience.
The chemicals are out there:
Sodium BiCarbonate
Sodium Hydroxide
Metel from coins,pellets,
NaOCl
Alum
Ammonia
Certain retailers supply other chemicals for
certain purposes.
Iodine can be purchased at a corner store.
iso-propyl alcohol can be used to make acetone
etc...
the list goes on
you have to find your own procedures and test
them.
Stick to one drug recipe until you get the
procedure right.
That is what it is all about.

Actually, I already know all of this. I was
specifically asking for a translation of
"Diatomaceous earth". It's used to
precipitate platinum/rhodium onto using
aqua regia to be used as a catalyst.

I think it's the same as "kiselgur" , if i'm not totally wrong.
It comes from the shell of small silicon algea, "kiselalger" in swedish. You can find in garden shops or such. I believe one use is to kill ants. You have to check it out. Google it.

Acid Test, what do you mean by:
"Swedes are more inclined to supply a cyanide
product than any other chemical product. "

I really don't understand your reply to axehandle?

I think it refers to a diatome from the earth
.Actually I am of Norwegian Descent
but translation of these languages are not
easy.
I think what it is refering to is a diatome
like a diomond or carbon or any other crystal
shaped metal,mineral for an electralysis
procedure.The crystal is used as a cataylist.
My best guess would be quartz,silicone dioxide,
silicone,etc
It would have to be a natural forming crystal.
Silicone Dioxide(sand) is natural

Me neither. Probably a misunderstanding.

Anyways, "kiselalger" it is. I *knew* what
I was looking for after having seen a tunneling
microscope picture of the little buggers, I
just couldn't remember what they are called
in Swedish.

Thank you!

A pool supply store should have plenty,
at an (I guess) resonable price.

And hmmm.... "cyanide"???? I think CN
compounds are more regulated here than
anywhere else in the world.

clarification


Diatomeous earth is actually the fossilized
exosceleton remains of very old algae, but
essentually our Norwegian friend is right.

Please keep this thread on TOPIC!

I deleted all the gibberish.

Furthermore, Acid Test, I've had it. You're banned from posting, effective now.
