purification of safrol Question
« on: November 21, 2002, 12:02:00 AM »
Hello, Ima newbie so I would like to ask a newbie Question.

If swip were to try to purify sassafras oil by washing with glacial acidic acid. then with dh20 and then add some denaturated alcohol to that and put that on a simple distillation

Is it possible to burn everything at 110degrees C :(

Just distill your sassy oil.

Just distill your sassy oil. Your safrole will be fine like that. If your worried about purity, distill it twice.

you could send your sassafras oil to me and I will distill it. I promise to post back if I have success.

depends on what kind of vacuum you have, at about 7-10 torr SWIM was getting sassy oil at around 113 C, that is roughly 29.6 in HG

The boiling point of acetic acid is ~110°C.

The boiling point of acetic acid is ~110°C. Are you distilling the right thing?

I did not use a vacuum NONEUKNOW :)

followed direction froms strikes book TS2

mixed sassafras oil with glacial acidic acid top layer acid bottom layer Oil as described in the book by TDK.

i read more here and found that mixing with acidic acid is a waste of time just distill the oil correct.  i have one more chance on this.

WOW I REALLY MESSED UP MY FLASK :( its black at the bottom

That part of TSII was incorrect.

You definitely need a vacuum source

I dont know what your plans are but you should invest in a good vaccuum source. Do more research and you'll realize you cant go without it. You have to do your homeworks if you want to succeed. And that includes reading tons of posts using TFSE.
If you really want it you can do it but take your time and make sure you understand what youre doing. You will always run into unexpected trouble when you first master the basic techniques. I wouldnt try to learn using that precious oil.

There is another way to distill

your oil. Just place your sassy oil in the frig at 11 degrees c for a day. Take a small amount about 3drops place that in the freeze (the drops will freeze solid) take those frozen drops and place in your now cold oil. Put the oil back in frig at 11 degrees c and cystals should start appearing in moments.
Let it cystalize for 24 hours (maybe over doing it but) then drain the unfrozen liquid into another container.
Take the cystals and let them come to room temp (they will melt)
Now place the melted cystals back into frig at 11 degrees c
They should recystalize (if not do the 3 drops trick again)
Do this 3 or 4 times pouring off the uncrystalized stuff each time. This will give you high purity safrol.
Safrol is illegal. So on second thought don't do this.
