Very nice, how much palladium is in there? Love those bright red colors.

I have some as well:

The coins measured 4.3g. I used 10 ml of HNO3 and 40 mL of HCl.

I got them from ebay and assumed they weren't fake. The end product looks exactly like someone else's photo.

The copper mirror is nice!

Over 80 bucks I think. Its actually worth more now, PdCl2 or NaPdCl4 is more expensive per gram and the mass increases with all those Cl atoms.

Very sexy palladium shot, worthy of a lab pin-up :D.

The copper mirror is quite sexy too.

Figured I add a few contributions of my own:

1) Formation of gold flakes from Auric Chloride by addition of sodium Metabisulfite.
2) Molten silver ingot.
3) Platinum mirror formed by addition of hydrazine sulfate to hexachloroplatinic acid.

That Silver ingot makes me swoon.

A few pictures which I like very much:

This is the fluorescence of the iodide of a pyridine-copper(I) complex which I made by reacting copper(I) iodide with pyridine:





The following picture was made, simply by lighting an air/ethanol mix in a flask:




I also like this one very much, it is the glow of singlet oxygen, falling back to normal oxygen and while doing so it emits red light. The singlet oxygen can be made by adding 30% H2O2 to Na-DCCA (swimming pool shock chlorine treatment).

@woelen:
Pic 2 is really nice but is that not an explosion hazard ? Vaporized ethanol (or even supermarket-grade methylated spirit with the blue dye) with air is explosive ??

Pic 3: Singlet oxygen is single atomic O ? Nice trick if I can get the 30% H2O2 (ebay ?) and swimming pool stuff.

i'm sure you've seen the pictures in the phosphorus thread. i was trying to take some in the dark of the green glow but it's so faint my shitty cam barely pics it up...:( i did catch this nice vid of some P4 dissolved i benzene. as the benzene evaporates the P4 oxidizes but i only used a tiny bit so it would show the lovely glow rather than cause conflagration.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XA02M9yf1qg?hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XA02M9yf1qg?hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

here is the link to the vid on boobtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XA02M9yf1qg

there are other vids of the phosphorus making process on my channel. they were private but i opened the rest to the public cuz fuck it that's why. everyone should be able to share the information i have or that makes me a censoring government dick.

I'm glad you made the videos public, I never really saw anything controversial in them. I understand your reasons though.

I have a video of the aqua regia, maybe I should post that :)

i wouldn't say it's impossible but this question made me curious so i put on my face sheild and tried it several times. no explosion but it sure looks cool!

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sShJs9by0XU?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/sShJs9by0XU?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

ok obviously it's not a true "barking dog" but the effect, while milder is quite similar. no CS2 or P4 or S but it's still pretty. woelen's was much nicer and the still he captured really does justice to the effect.

later i will upload a vid of elemental phosphorus reacting with chlorine gas. did that last night and it's niiiice:D

i know it says pretty "pictures" but i do hope video is ok?

Some very beautiful pictures in this thread. I wish I had more myself, I took hundreds of pictures of my experiments at home however my camera was a much older model, something like 256 KB quality so most of my pictures are grainy / blurry / bad color. Somehow when the elements were perfect however, by some quirk of fate, it would take a good picture, not as pretty as the rest in the thread but pretty enough:

Pulling off ammonia though a compressor with copper tubing created ammonia complex in wash bottle.



One of my favorites, electrolysis of lithium chloride in DMSO with nickel electrodes



Trying to distill CS2 from carbon and sulfur and only ended up distilling sulfur



The first experiment I photographed, burning potassium after its creation


Such a beautiful science!

here are a couple of pics and the vid of P4 with Cl2

inerted.JPG - 49kB
reaction flask inerted with CO2 with sand on bottom to mitigate breakage risk
P4.JPG - 50kB
the bottle of P4...ghetto home-made tag but better than unlabeled no?
P4 cut.JPG - 49kB
cut a small piece to react
chlorine.JPG - 47kB
fresh chlorine gas for reaction

and finally the reaction. i drew some of the Cl2 gas into the syringe and "injected" it over the chunk of P4.

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/4C26LqhzuMc?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/4C26LqhzuMc?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

shook the flask a little trying to get the syringe out and stopper on. don't sweat fellas. i'm using ventilation. last thing i want to do is gas myself with a nerve agent (PCl3).:o

the reaction is A LOT more energetic if you just drop the P4 in the chlorine flask but safety first you know.
