Probably best to stock up on KI before they list that as well.

I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't watch it already.

There is a procedure by Alexein (don't know if he's active here anymore) that uses NaI, acidified with conc HCl, and oxidized with 3% peroxide to yield I2. Link:

Really they'd have to restrict all alkali metal iodide salts to do any good...

Bob Thompson is a member here, and as I recall he was asking for suggestions for the book. I'm fairly sure that video has already been linked to also.

Im a big fan of Make, they always have interesting things. Nurd Rage also has a really good iodine video on youtube.

Iodine is truly a beautiful element. I love it in solid, liquid(!) and gas form! It also ruins everything it touches, so its beautiful and deadly.

I love him sticking it to the man like that. is definitely a good first experiment that everyone should do.
