Crossing the road can also be messy and lethal if done incorrectly. And you won't film a video of how to cross the road (I thing). You should want to make the video because of the amazing chemistry going on, and all the complex thinking that designed the experiment ;)

Received some hard to get chrysene. Here is 5mg in 3ml acetone under a blacklight. A neat and different fluorescent material! It is found in car exhaust, cigarette smoke and burnt BBQ foods I believe.
Quite carcinogenic and expensive. A small speck is seen in the bottom of the vial

KCl crystal I grew over the course of the last year and a half. ran out of room in the snapple tea bottle, destroyed the bottle to retrieve it. just mixed and set out for a long time, then put in with worn out CaCl2 and checked periodically. turned out nice I think

pile of ammonium sulfate,... drying magnesium hydroxide,... some of the larger crystals of ammonium sulfate. I had made the magnesium hydroxide for a ceramic component. epsom salt and ammonia, MgSO4 + 2 NH4OH -> Mg(OH)2 + (NH4)2SO4 and figured why not use my free dessicator( backyard) to salvage the ammonium sulfate also? I do already have 40#'s or so for the lawn in the shed, but better than down the drain. fertilizer and ceramic material, nothing to waste

The reaction of triphenylphosphine with lithium.

When adding lithium metal (those near shiny lumps floating over there) to a solution of triphenylphopshine in tetrahydrofuran, phenyl lithium and lithium diphenylphosphide will form (that orange colored thing at the surface of the lithium). The reaction will only happen if the solvent does not contain any water, but when it starts, the whole solution will turn blood red in a few minutes.




I have a blog where I post my pictures from my work: http://labphoto.tumblr.com/

Yes, extracted a quarter pound of "Safeway" brand ground black pepper. The oil is layering out nicely in the bottom of my beaker. Wish I had a better camera :(

Edit--Me, through a "rose" colored filter. Red rose pigment, aqueous extract dried on a glass plate

When I moved in here after fight with daugther-in-law (over the non-existent meth lab) I explained to the manager and housekeeping what I was doing. They asked me to keep the flasks inside so as not to alarm the other guests LOL.

I got my rig a couple three weeks ago as a gift from a generous member on this board. See this post.

Same member was "griping", "wheres the pictures of what your doing?".
"Uh, my little Kodak digi broke".
"Well, I sent you one".

So, I'll be filling this thread up! (camera arrives today)
