Karlos,
C acetobutylicum is available from carolina.com.
Not sure about international shipping but it is in soil all around the world.
It is anaerobic so it needs a wet location generally speaking to keep out oxygen, but if you flip over a log in a marsh, you should be able to culture the required bacteria, you just need to exclude oxygen.

macckone, anaerobic is very easy, just use butane, heavy cheap and very available

sulfuric acid electroproduction is cool but the preparation of PVC membrane works using one specific brand and mysteriousbhoice isnt interested in selling PVC membranes sadly. they do sell NaHSO4 at hardware stores quite cheap, but really... "tower acid" (50% H2SO4) is sold in 25kg jugs, the only pros of producing it yourself if were talking money/hours is that it goes unlisted
now, if you could get to utilize calcium sulfate, i believe i saw something about NaOH being able to react with CaSO4 but im not sure if that was just a dream, then you would really be going places. NaOH can be made by electrolysis, maybe CaSO4 could be added to electrolysis chamber?

myst also worked on producing HNO3 from perchlorate solution and he did manage to produce HCl too electrolytically




~25 drops = 1mL @dH2O viscocity - STP
Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.

You could use old cable sheath (the withe NYM cabel) and disolve it in Tetrahydrofuran. When i have time i trie this route.

You can use clay pot or li-ion battery separator

Except that it's not available to consumers in many parts of the world.

i bought a liter of 50% H2SO4 from autoparts store, and the H2SO4 is available on ebay as pool agent for reducing pH
i did buy 1L many years back of H2SO4 that was only 37%

it does appear that CaSO4 can react with Na2CO3 to form Na2SO4 and CaCO3, NaOH should work even better. wonder if molten NaOH on anhydrous CaSO4 would do anything?

h2so4 from drain opener and distill it. easy



just another politically incorrect canceled culture

they only sell H2SO4 as drain opener in the US and its already plenty concentrated so theres no point in distilling concentrated acid at 700*C

We are drifting further off-topic but this is not true actually.
I've seen it being sold in quite a few countries throughout the EU, not very common and often more towards the professional market but definitely available, even after the recent ban.
