Zinc reduction ph

Migrated topic.


Rising Star
Hey there,

as a quick question re Zinc powder reductions on DMT-oxide.

is it important to have the Ph at 3?
[or this is just a guide? e.g. ph 1 would work just as well]

is it possible to use phosphoric acid instead of HCl?

Yeah it seemed to. The yield wasn't as high as I was expecting, but I did rush it a bit. I also don't think I used enough zinc, but the reaction definately took place.
anyone done an Non Zinc /Zinc powder reduction comparison test?

i.e. same batch of plant material split in 2
and then final yields compared?

I'll do one today,
and if anyone else wants to try too that'd be cool.
