Heroin base to HCl without ether?
« on: April 12, 2002, 01:51:00 PM »
Is it possible to just dilute the heroin base in enough ethanol, add HCl and then let the ethanol evaporate to be left with heroin-hcl? I can't see what the ether is needed for other than letting the heroin-hcl precipitate.

Another question: Heroin base will decompose to morphine on prolonged contact with air, but how long could it be stored when dissolved in ethanol?
