Have already made enthanol, crystal clear over 90! On first pass. Nice bit of it and definitely the ethanol is good enough for a solvent to use. My question is this who else is using it and please don't say you haven't thought of what else could be made. Pretty sure the botanical basket is gonna let me some cinnamaldehye ! But the holy Grail which might be different would be lovely benzaldehyde and l-alanine and watch the condensate fill the receiving flask .it has a thermometer on and liebig style stainless condensor etc

What's to go wrong?

Hi and welcome to SM.

I am not sure what your question is here or the relevance of the thread title.
You will find that a lot of members distil their own ethanol for solvent use -- it is really difficult to get undenatured EtOH most places.
You are right that there are plenty of useful reagents that may be extracted from natural sources. Piperine from black pepper, oxalic acid from rhubarb, benzaldehyde from bitter almond oil, thymol etc. etc. etc.
There are threads devoted to many of these extractions. Often they are a god challenge but for most it ends up being more convenient to source reagents from elsewhere.

If your intent is to discuss the possibilities for reagents from natural extractions, could you perhaps edit the title to indicate this. In the meantime, I am going to shift this one to Beginnings.
J.

Unless you were just wanting a lot of cheap decongestant for your allergies.
