what can you do without lab glassware


Hypothetically speaking let's say laboratory glassware are so prohibited and illegal to obtain (like in Tunisia) what can you do to distill liquids or separate solvents? Any Ideas? Barium can be very useful it can be used to make most acids by adding sulfuric acid and barium sulfate isn't a gel like (CaSO4)
And it can be regenerated by adding sodium carbonate to make barium carbonate! Strontium works too
What about making aluminum distiller? Aluminum doesn't react with phosphoric nor nitric acid

You can make a "ghetto setup" and for example make a condenser from bottle having a tube running through it. After filling with water, ideally running through it should be usable.

Depending on your resources, everything from soda bottles to self glass-blown stuff to pressure kettles to TIG welded SS DIY process equipment.

DIY condenser


Have access to glass tubing and rubber
stoppers ? My 1st condenser was a large
glass tube with 2-hole rubber stoppers on
each end. 1 smaller glass tube ran
between 2 of the holes on the stoppers.
The remaining hole on the stoppers used
bent glass tubing as water inlets and
outlets. Worked very well at the time.




From opening of NCIS New Orleans - It goes a BOOM ! BOOM ! BOOM ! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !

I made one just like that too. It worked fine and lasted until I had saved enough to buy some glassware.
