Getting Calcium metal by thermite reaction with Al ?


I heard in a periodic video on the Youtube channel of Martyn Poliakoff (most of you will probably know him) how the Ca 48 isotope is made.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CodBk7xewRk

He tells that the metal is finally reduced by aluminothermic reduction of CaO.

Is this aluminothermic reduction (of 'ordinary' calcium, not Ca-48) really possible for the amateur chemist, or only in the very specialstic Dubna lab with high-tech equipment ?




DJT is for the USA and the world as ClF3 is for humans.
