Harm Reduction Resources / Re: The Drug Users Bible: Download It Free Of Charge Here
« Last post by DMTrott on February 29, 2024, 05:58:12 PM »
My post above, of course, explains why The Drug Users Bible was converted to a PDF and provided without charge across the darknet (and indeed here).

Well... there's been another development.

An easily navigable and hopefully aesthetically pleasing browser version has been created. You can access this here, with the navigation bar unfolding on the left hand side: https://drugusersbible.org/

I can't take any credit for this. It was in fact created by staff and members of Dread. An advantage it carries is being able to link directly to any specific page of content. This makes my life easier at least.

I hope that this is of interest and is of use.

There’s no guarantee that this is what atara was talking about, but it was all One could find.

I read that the yields are very low like 10%, and isolating the pure borohydride without decomposition would be tricky.

And why isn't this method used or talked about more? I see no cheap magnesium diboride or easy way to make it

Honestly kind of overcomplicated when you can just buy the best precursor to borohydride and react it with alkali hydroxides
What's the precursor?

I'd be interested to know as well, because I was under the impression the easiest for the amateur would be sodium hydride and trimethyl borate. I was thinking borane and sodium hydroxide, but I am fairly sure that would produce sodium metal.

Not sure I understand the fuss about nabh4 being watched, the time spent figuring out how to get or make nabh4 could be better spent figuring out how to reduce without it

There was this chinese patent, the NaBH4 was made from Mg metal and some borax sodium carbonate, water in a ball mill: https://www.sciencemadness.org/whisper/viewthread.php?tid=158235

 One would have to make a tightly sealed ball mill, that could bee filled with argon though and afterwards wind a way to recrystallise the NaBH4 without hydrolysis. Quite a bit of a hassle and specialised equipment.

Various new users are spamming this board with nonsense, all likely just bots. god knows what reason someone would waste their time doing so, but indeed it is occurring.

Please promptly execute these braindead larvae and chemically destroy their remains so our humble vespiary will be clean of their unwelcome filth and nonsensical tomfoolery.

Many thanks <3 (Also delete this post if you wish once the task is completed)
