NO. That would just explode.
No sparks, no visible flame. Just a Bang! Maybe some Al flakes will float to the slowly to the ground.

Similar but not the same actually.. Wouldn't recommend doing it though without proper safety shields as seen here

I know it explodes wit a loud bang HAHAHAHAHAHA :-)

Dear zyklon-A I'll tell u soon about its details! for now I've got these pic for u which I designed before I make an actual one!

15.png - 608kB

1- is plexy glass (we use this name for it here in my place)
2- is screw hole , the screw will be connected to part 7 (copper plate)
3- is hole which will be connected to vaccum pomp
4- is screw hole , the screw will be connected to part 6 (sample/substrate holder which was made whit a metal shit)
5- it's just a glass bowl but big one! HAHAHA
6- substrate holder !
7- Copper plate
8 - two ring magnets for helping the plasma to get more dens above those magnets and that area!

but it didn't coated well , I am working on it
and uh , for power supply I used an old MOT! (Microwave owen transformer) HAHAHAHAHA and a Variac

I made it from steel. In the picture, I'm filtering the carbon out of it before I recrystallized it. I then used it to make iron gall ink.

Hmmm. You could perform nucleophilic substitutions there and add different groups :)

I never get tired of seeing the beauty of different things in science especially in chemistry. I recently had to sort through a few of my past experiments and I found some old pictures from back in the day when I just started to document my experiments with fluorescein. The fluorescence still looks amazing....

Not too many things quite like fluorescein, I always wanted to try my hand at making some for kicks. Thanks for sharing. I used to talk to a really cool person who turned me on to chemistry and they had some really cool pictures of the stuff.

Just finished my DIY TLC lamp, so I'll have to post some pictures of some things fluorescing soon as I can find a camera to borrow.

Chorination of an organic compound with elemental chlorine and UV-C light.

The glass on the left is a quartz tube with a low-pressure mercury-vapor lamp inside it what emits UV-C light with a maximum emission at 253 nm. Normal borosilicate glass would absorb this light, but the quartz lets it through, so it could cause the chlorine molecules to break and form highly reactive chlorine atoms.

The greenish-yellow light at the other glass joint is caused by the fluorescent reaction products.




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

Ferrous sulfate is one of my favorites, along with Arkoma's copper acetylsalicylate. Do you have a write-up or recipe for making that ink? I know we have a thread for it but I'm too lazy to go through all of that. I'm hoping to make some for a friend who enjoys calligraphy.

Oh, and Hegi, great pictures, both the landscapes and the minerals. I've really got to get around to visiting Central/Eastern Europe, for the nature if nothing else.

Well, the ink that I made isn't the best stuff. I just kinda threw it together, loosely basing it on fiberdrunk's California live oak gall ink recipe, which is linked in that thread. The differences with mine are that I used Texas live oak galls, because that's what I have, and more ferrous sulfate, because for some reason it wasn't complexing properly with the amount used in the recipe. It's also still quite runny, despite stirring in several heaping spoonfuls of acacia gum. Maybe it just needs more, I don't know. I also don't have anything to use to write with it, other than glass stirring rods, so that probably also contributes to the messiness when writing.

Oh, all right. You said it so matter-of-factly I thought this was something you were experienced with. I'll probably have to do a fair amount of experimentation when I finally get around to it.

Actually I do have a few more pictures of some experiments I've conducted over the years. Some pictures are okay and some not so much.... but I've started a blog pertaining to my overall experiments in chemistry and if anyone wants to take a look I'd be honoured http://lab-chemist.tumblr.com/.

Apart from that here's a few of my pictures from one of my experiments. This was the chlorination of toluene to yield benzotrichloride, sadly I only got it to produce a mixture of benzyl and benzal chloride but I still count it as a success considering the sun was my uv-source and a mirror was improvised with some aluminum foil to help focus the light.
