Decided to prepare some MDP-2-P Oxime this morning since I'm out of MDA
To my great surprise, The Hydroxylamine Hcl I had in stock wasn't snow white anymore, but more of a greyish-purple tint
I have no recollection of how it smelled (or any other properties beside color for that matters), but it sure wasn't that color :
What happened here ?? My MERCK states it slowly decomposes when moist (I didn't bother storing it correctly...Simply used 3 differents layers of plastics bags + some dessicant...Been lying around for 4-5 months ), I suppose that's the culprit and that the product is completely loss ??(If so, that's what I deserve for being negligent I suppose
). I've searched a bit but found nothing really relevant....
If what I'm saying makes sense, I suppose recrystallization (or just about purification technique
) is useless since the product is now mostly another compound, right? If so, looks like I'm going to synth. it myself instead of buying it
As always, thanks a lot in advance...Your help is ALWAYS greatly appreciated!
If you haves another explanation, f
