I have been whipping up and distilling my own isopropyl nitrite for over a year and have no problems. But the first time I let a boyfriend of mine use it he woke up the next day with a hefty blind spot in one eye. After a few weeks it improved a little but it's been a year now and he never fully recovered normal vision in that eye. So, enjoy at your own risk and don't let someone else try it without warning them. This guy is a commercial truck driver and I am sure a blind spot in one eye is NOT helpful to his profession.

Plenty of information here on IPN vision loss:

"whipping up and distilling" - you are a qualified and competent chemist?

Watch out. Beaker is the name of a character from The Muppet Show. He is the assistant of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew/ both are involved in disasters / laboratory explosions, electrocution etc/ Seems a tasteless name to choose when detailing such an alleged serious incident

Read the post then add a big pinch of sodium chloride.

Being partially blinded is certainly not good for such work. He should consider getting a new job, and perhaps a new boyfriend that does not brew up poppers in the basement.

Does he drive around / to the Hull area? If so give me a shout, as I have a mate up that way who likes visitors.

>a big pinch of

The ill effects of that formula have long been a rallying call for Jako. I suggest you work out the relationship (if any) between Beaker & Jako.

Informed opinion is that IPN, due to its particular structure vs other nitrites, can trigger existing conditions. Ocular health will not be improved by using IPN, so take it on board.

Whipping up:

"To make someone feel a particular emotion or strong emotions:affect, provoke, inspire..."

Beaker's boyfriend (one of several it seems) is unlucky enough to have experienced this relatively rare side effect of IPN --- AND is a lorry driver. Really? IPN is commonly available and cheap/ most of these domestic brewers make amyl and iso-butyl I believe. Sorry, I am skeptical about this whole story.
