Beginner gas chemistry - a really nice site


Everyone seems to be going AlCl3 cracky at the moment on the good ship madness. Work like that usually involves particularly nasty gases.

I thought some of you might like this site I found. Don't know how many of you have already seen it, but I liked it.

Generating a number of the reactive gases in a big syringe, so you can see what they do or run tests without getting a mountain of glass out and having things go topsy turvy with ten moles of it floating around. It's all done in ziplock bags as well, to help with the smell, watering eyes, coughing and purities

Wow, this stuff is pretty cool. I gotta try me some of these reactions, I have an appropriate 60ml syringe.

But running around with a leaf blower and a gas mask is just a different experience ;)

Have you tried standing in the garden, smoking a cigarette in your pants trying to wash the fumes out of the air with the hose pipe and make it look casual? :D

"Nothing to see here...."

It's a good site!

I have not been at this site for quite some time. I was inspired by the previous version of this site to make gases at a microscale and I actually have a few experiments on my website, which are inspired by this idea, using a syringe. I made the following gases and did experiments with them with the help of syringes:
- O2
- CO2
- CO
- NO
- N2O
- C2H2
- Cl2
- H2S
- NO/NO2 mix
- ClN3
- H2
- SO2
- (CN)2
- C2H6

The palladium catalyst tube they have for sale is quite interesting. I'm tempted to buy that. :)
