Any Fun Projects?


I'm wondering what I can do with some of these chemicals I have.
I'm just looking for something fun to do and could not find anything on here to do with the materials I have.

Chemicals:
KNO3
KCLO3
H2O2 30% and 3%
Hexamine
H2SO4 98%
HCL 32%
Iron Nitrate
Copper Nitrate
Copper Chloride
Nickel Metal
Nickel Nitrate
HNO3 75% and 50%
Sodium Hypochlorite 5%
Ammonia (Household grade)
Ethanol 90-96%
Methanol 70-80% (not really sure)
Hexanes
Naphtha
NaOH
Acetone
Borax
Hydrazine Sulfate
Erythritol
Citric Acid
Urea
Sodium Carbonate
I think I have a bit more but I'm not sure off the top of my head.
And some more household items.


If you have any ideas it would be greatly appreciated!
:)


(Thanks for moving the thread Texium :) I was not sure where it went.)

Besides the ones you’ve already done/talked about doing in other threads, how about trimethyl borate?

I now have a YouTube channel. So far just electronics and basic High Voltage experimentation, but I'll hopefully have some chemistry videos soon.

Energetic Materials


I see a great potential there for lots of experimentation with this class of chemistry.
Be careful with KClO3 however. That's the most reactive of the oxidizers you
have listed there. A couple of strong acids are always useful.

As for the ethanol, if it's NOT denatured, at that percentage I see a potential for
vodka based mixed drinks.

HAVE FUN !

Urea and sodium hydroxide to make ammonium hydroxide.
Iron, nickel or copper complexes.
Potassium perchlorate from potassium chlorate via thermal decomposition.

You could make Biuret by condensation of the urea. That could then be used with your copper and nickel to make complexes.
Another neat thing would be making citrazinic acid with citric acid and urea, easy reactions, it and its salts and fluorescent under UV.
Trimethyl/trimethyl citrate smells quite nice so something else to do there as well.
