What a horrible book. Some cop is going to use it as evidence and the jury is going to believe him.

It says Aluminum Trichloride is essential to manufacturing nerve agents. Better watch out Peach! George W Bush might find out.

And acetone can be added to benzene to make P-2-P :facepalm:

BTW I totally lost it at "Leeroy Jenkems"

The book is garbage.


That book makes the home scientist out to be the criminal. People should be able to explore chemistry at their own free will and thrive. As someone who explores chemistry under the carport behind his garage, this really honks me off.

You know, I've often wondered this. Would it not be at least slightly likely that this mixture would create at least one molecule of P2P if there was some water in the reaction? For example, let's say acetone spontaneously deprotonates (which it does just not very often, right?) Then electrons from the aryl group create a bond to the carbocation and then the H spontaneously donates its electrons back to the ring and protonates water. Like normal Friedel-Crafts alkylation except relying on deprotonation of acetone onto water (instead of Cl onto AlCl3) and deprotonation of arenium to water as well.

Yes, this would be an EXTREMELY unlikely sequence of events, but is it possible? If not, then why?.
