Is that 1mL?
What's even the point of having a beaker that small? I'm genuinely curious.

Here's some copper(II) carbonate. I know, nothing really special, but this particular stuff is special to me, because it came from my very first vacuum filtration earlier today! Now it's in my desiccator finishing its drying.
I think I'll use a picture of it once its dry on the wiki. I'd use this one, but it seems like a dry version would be more accurate.

I know different lanthanide oxides are used to stabilize the glass, especially to increase alkali resistance. These must be terrible for use for UV photography.

Here are some magnesium turnings I made:

The interesting is, that the older full metal El-Nikkor 80mm f5.6, what is a highly recommended lens for UV photography (http://photographyoftheinvisibleworld.blogspot.hu/2011/02/uv...) also fluoresces under UV light. The front element has a strong blue and the rear element has a faint green fluorescense.

3-nitroaniline prepared by the Hofmann degradation of 3-nitrobenzamide with household bleach. It was a fun prep!

Looks great! How was the yield?
That would look great under my microscope... :)

I haven't gotten around to re crystallizing from ethanol yet, still drying over NaOH. Looked decent given that it started with only 1.5g of 3-nitrobenzamide. I'll report back soon, I want to recrystallize very slowly to see what kind of crystals this will make!

Thought I'd get around (Finally) To the uploading of some Sodium Chlorate/Sodium Chloride crystals under my microscope.

Looks cool. Did you make the chlorate?
My sodium chlorate cell is a pain to work with. The yields are never great, and it takes a long time. KClO3 is easier.

Could it be some composition wrapped in aluminium foil and hit witnh a hammer? I've seen this done with an organic peroxide before...

Yes, I bet that's what it is. The shower of sparks look like a thermite, or a slow burning yellow flash powder.

It was just the decomposition of bleach by heat, that's all. No electro. cell. I've been meaning to try making one, though.

Dear zyklon-A it's composition was (it was kind of flash powder I guess): Potassium permanganate(24 grams) + sulfur (7 grams) + charcoal (2 grams), I wrapped it in paper shit/paper towel , then hit it with hammer and then boom HAHAHAHAHA (but there was no actual loud sound ,it just bursts into flames! without producing sound of explosion) :-)
