1st attempt: Mescaline Extraction
« on: September 19, 2003, 04:46:00 AM »
SWIM, having recently obtained an amount of potent T. Peruvians cactus, was considering running an extraction. Following the method on rhodium, he would use xylene as the non-polar solvent. However, in choosing/obtaining acids/bases he was considering using citric acid and ammonia. All other steps following the method on rhodium, would this acid/base combination work?

Not two,

why not use sodium hydroxide or Tri-sodium-phosphate?

citric acid can be used to take the mescaline out of the NP
