Sodium (or Potassium) Sarcosinate


I got some information about synthesizing Sodium sarcosinate from formaldehyde, sodium cyanide and methyl amin. However, I cannot find any information regarding such parameters as any involvement of catalyst, reaction temperature, pressure. etc.

Anybody out there knows these parameters.

It is used in


production of creatine production. Creatine is a natural substance normally found in muscles, which is consumed during work out. Now it is synthetically produced. Although I found a great deal of information about its manufacture. I could not find any information regarding process parameters. :(

Forgot to add that creatine used by body builders.:)

Yeah


Not only tall and strong but also I like sports and chemistry. So I thought if I can do some other things in chemistry, why not synthesize creatine and use it my sports activities.

IIRC also handy for masking the effects of flushing your system before a drugs test.
Flushing with water lowers levels in urine.

You're going to consume it?
A homemade substance with the following precursors:

- sodium cyanide
- methylamine
- formaldehyde

all toxic?

You'd better extract and wash your product VERY thoroughly.




One shouldn't accept or resort to the mutilation of science to appease the mentally impaired.

wow, you must be mad!!!
any chemical reaction will produce side products, and even if they are minute they still may have a high level of toxicity!! Wouldnt try this myself, consuming chemicals you have created, as you never know the side products! This is not as straightforward as NaOH and HCl - and even in that case i wouldnt consume it, you simply dont know what kind of other salts are produced!
Always wondered, how do those drug makers of ecstasy etc dare it? i would never try, once again for the same reason! am I overly cautious?

Quite Mad


Any way! You know this is science madness.

:D:D:D:D

And all organic chemistry reactions have some risks in it. :(:(:(
