First of all this method does require some very wat ched items. Red phosphorous and iodine crystals can bring unwanted attention if ordered from different supply companies. If by chance one cannot seem to obtain these items anywhere, there is still hope. It is possible to obtain these items OTC (over the counter) at your nearest supermarket. If one can get one's hands o n lab grade without getting a one-way ticket to the slammer, it is well worth it . The striking pads of matchbooks contain a small amount of red phosphorous. It is not pure, so consider cleaning it up a bit before use. It is possible to conver t iodine tinctures to iodine crystals. Tinctures can be found on the shelves of many different supermarkets, and come in 30 ml bottles of 2% iodine in solution. Tinctures are also available at cattle supply houses, in pint and gallon sizes, which contain 7% iodine in solution. Iodine prill, a common name for iodine powd er or pellets often available in cattle supply stores as well, works great just the way it is. There are many different ways to collect red phosphorous from the striking pads of matchbooks. Scraping it off with a razor blade is a simple collection process . A better way is to cut the strikers off and soak them in acetone until the red phosphorous falls off. It takes a very large number of strikers to obtain a lar ge enough pile to do anything with, but it is a proven method in use by many peo ple. When all of the phosphorous falls off the paper, remove the paper, filter the ac etone/red phosphorous through two coffee filters, rinse with distilled water, an d let dry. Now mix up a solution of 20% sodium hydroxide. That is 20% grams of s odium hydroxide in 100 ml of distilled water. Place the dry red phosphorous in a beaker or flask of choice and add the hydroxide solution to it. Heat this mixtu re on low heat for a few hours, and then filter through two coffee filters again . When dry, rinse with hot distilled water a few times and let dry. This will pr oduce a more pure powder that will fire off a push/pull reaction. To convert 2% iodine tinctures, the following are used: 500 ml 2% iodine tincture 125 ml muramic acid (hardware store strength) 235 ml h ydrogen peroxide (3% topical solution) 862 ml distilled water To convert 7% iodine tinctures, the following are used: 1 pint of 7% tincture 3 pints of 3% peroxide 2 oz. of muriatic acid '/a cup of distilled water Pour the tincture in a one-gallon milk jug, add the muriatic acid, and mix it al l together well. Let this mixture sit for half an hour. Now add the 3% hydrogen peroxide, with thorough mixing, an d let it sit for another half an hour. Next, add the distilled water and shake vigorously until your arms tire , then let it sit for another half an hour.
so be safe. Warning: When making one's own crystals from tinctures. no more than a 10-gram batch in a 250 ml size flask or bottle.7 gram of red phosphorous. LIDS & HOSES SEALED TIGHT! As one can see from Figure 40. So now. one should need no water. If the dr ain hose is down the drain. Fill the first water tank with distilled water % of the way full . Place the red phosphorous in the f lask. Take the flask from the freezer. Do not flood the reaction with water! Place the flask on a coffee cup warmer or in a hot water bath. Continue to add. pour the contents t hrough two coffee filters. Keep a bucket of dirt or sand at hand to smother any possible phosphorous fire. The small bubbles will be somewhat silvery looking. Keep doing this until one gets a nice solid dry ball of crystals. and shake again. With OTC chemicals. With lab grade red phosphorous and iodine crystals. the ratios by weight are 1-g ram pseudoephedrine/ephedrine HCl to 1 gram of iodine crystals to 0. heat to maintain an ea sy bubbling reaction.5 grams of iodine crystals to 0.There should be an orange layer on top of a dark grey layer. Let it sit for a few minutes. During the first phase of the reaction. and then pour off the orange solution again . so b e on the safe side. mix in good with a glass rod. Pour off the orange layer. it is very easy to construct the apparatus for th is reaction. the reactants should be dark and may be a dark thick-looking mud. the ratios are 1-gram pseudoephedrine/ephedri ne HCl to 1. Now one must wring dry the crystals in the coffee fil ters. add more fresh distilled water to them. The second one leave empty. In the next phase. and wring them out again. Repeat this process three times. A phosphorous fire is a possibility. one wants to do a 20-gram batch. use a 500 ml flask or bottle a nd two 64-oz. Make sure all the hoses scale in place because one does not want any leaks. This setup easily scales larger or smaller for different size batches. Weigh out the pseudoephedrine/ephedrine HCl and place inside the flask or bottle. just he at the reactants a little and it should be fine. put them in another stack of coffee filters. Weig h out the red phosphorous. First thing to do is set up the pu sh/pull vessel. One can either put the drain hose from the second tank down the drain past the u trap or in a bucket of cat litter. A small clear beer bottle can replace the flask if one is not on ha nd. Remember that iodine is poisonous. Store the crystals in a dark-colored jar or bottle. plastic Gatorade jugs. For OTC chemicals. the mixture turns to a thick liquid and starts bubbling. but other times it may not be. let us get started with the reaction. The grey layer is w hat you want. at least around 15-20 minutes or until bubbling begins to slow. The reaction can be very quick. When the r eaction starts. increase heat to the flask. Wring dry. If. one may have to add a few drops of distilled water to get the reaction going. on and off.5 gram of re d phosphorous. and hook it up to the water tanks. The grey layer is iodine crystals that have crashed out of solutio n. A light yellow-colored mist and white fog inside the flask is normal. it is time to turn on the water to keep the fumes do wn. and after the third time. If using lab grade chemicals.ter into the second. Some gas ma y now be pushing into the first water tank and wa. Figure 40 the Push/Pull Set Up STOPPER S. wear eye protection and chemical resistant gloves. slowly raise it up to between 160°- . The cont ents inside the flask will raise some. That is it. take it off the heat. Next weigh out the iodine crystals and put them ins ide with the pseudoephedrine/ephedrine HCl. and work outdoors. One should have nice iodine crystals that will work in the reaction. for example. Mix them together very well and stop per the flask or bottle and place it in the freezer for around 3-4 minutes.
The reaction should begin to bubble very rapidly. The small reaction bubbles will start turning into big bubbles that collapse into large holes. If t his does not work. Wash the solvent/base layer with distilled water a few times. The color of the reactio n will change to a dark purple or reddish with a yellow tint. Filter all the r ed phosphorous out of the mix. remove from the hea t and swirl the contents around in the flask to get the smoking to stop. The reaction should be pushing gas into water tanks. Swirlin g will also keep the reactants from rising too high. and dry with dehydrated Epsom salts. If so. the color should be clear to pale yellow.180° F. Tilt the flask. If not. it should be finished. try putting the red phosphorous back into the water from wh ich it was filtered. Heat it up to about 200° F for two hours to complete it. that is all right too. and may start to smoke. Th e contents will rise quickly. in an open flask and on water bath. A couple of coffee filters also works well for fi ltering the red phosphorous out. Next. Let react until all ^seems t o be dead inside the flask (no reaction) even with applied heat. Sometimes there is no pull with small react ions. the crap in the pills may have messed the reaction up. A pull may be n oted. heat th e mixture at 150° F for 30 minutes in order to free the contents. If reactants slowly flow off the bottom and sides and are not longer stuck.vent/base layer to get crystals of me thamphetamine . but a lot harder this time. Let cool to room temperature. If this is the case. and then add 100 ml of distilled water. Now it is time to base and extract the meth base with a non-polar solvent such a s toluene. Gas the sol. the reaction might n ot be complete or the adulterants in the pills may have messed it up. If on e gets a dark orange or red color that does not filter out.
