how can i evaporate ethanol?

Post by tim » Mon Apr 09, 2012 8:38 am

i am makeing dmt useing the poor mans dmt tek http://chemicalrecipes.blogspot.com.au/ ... guide.html
and i am at the last stage, i have ethanol with dmt in it and i need to evaporate the ethanol leaveing behind dmt.
so how can i evaporate it quickly?
i dont want to cook it because im scared i might kill the dmt.
i was thinking of putting it in the sun, and in a large dish so it has more surface area and is thinner.
and maybe have a hair dryer or something to blow air or suck air?

ethanol evaporates at about 78 degrees celsius, so you could just your stove to heat it without boiling, just make sure to do it in a ventilated room, because the fumes can be nasty, (atleast when you're burning your own spirits) , although I don't know how DMT acts when heated, Ikku or JTP probably has the answer.

spread it on a dish and let it sit on a hotplate, and like sugarstalker said make sure it's ventilated (you can even put a little fan to breeze over the top of the dish)

I don't know anything about using ethanol as a solvent, doesn't seem like it would work nearly as well as a nonpolar solvent and you would end up with a really messy product containing DMT as well as base (NaOH or whatever you used).

Also, nonpolar solvents are pretty damn volatile and they still take forever to evaporate, I imagine ethanol would take at least as long. Yeah you'll want to spread it out as thin as possible and need lots of ventilation. You will end up with a lot of gunky residue in the end this way though. For a nice crystalline product you want to freeze precipitate it, not evaporate it. So I would try throwing the alcohol in the freezer and seeing if crystals form. Not sure if this will work though because the solubilities of alcohol and a nonpolar solvent are completely different.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.
