Mescaline extraction question
« on: November 01, 2003, 06:43:00 AM »
I am planning a extraction ala

and I have a question. After basifying and extracting mescaline freebase w/ non-polar, is it possible to avoid adding dilute acid to the non-polar and instead just gassing with Cl2 to salt the mescaline out of the n-p?

Dont add Cl 2 , that would be *DUMB*!

Anyhow, i think that the mescaline is to impure to crystallize just like that. So i'd definately chose the route their using in that document!

My revised plan I guess is to add dilute sulfuric acid to the np/freebase and then recrystalize the mescaline sulfate with hot distilled water. My question now is what pH should I be aiming for in the aqueous layer?
