N-butyl nitrite

8 grams SN into 8 mls DW
10 mls butyl alcohol into 10 mls muriatic acid...pour alcohol into acid and mix at RT and freeze.
With ice bath, slowly drip the acid/alcohol into cold SN solution. Use moderate mag stir.

Pipette yellow yield......should be close to 90-100 % yield.
Use damp lime to neutralize acid. Use a volume equal to around 30% of yield. Mix and let sit 20 minutes minimum. Bubbles will form.

Pour off into dry bottle and add anhydrous sodium carbonate and molecular sieve 4. Should smell sweet...a bit like Sprite Soda Pop.

It's critical to neutralize the acid and keep dry afterwards, lest popper go bad fast.

SN does go bad with exposure to air. Product will become less potent and less sweet smelling.

8 grams SN per 10 mls alcohol is sufficient to get a potent popper. When 9 grams or higher is added to 10 mls alcohol, the popper can become "too" potent leading to toxic effects quickly, such as blood pressure lows and visual disturbances.

Wet lime works better than baking soda to neutralize all the acids.

Butyl nitrite is a component in anti-freeze. Amyl is a vasodilator medicine & U.S. Pharmacopeia states that amyl is safe. What tests were done on butyl? I know that in Massachusetts butyl is a Class D Controlled Substance.

Thanks Madeplentypoppers.

When you say wet/damp lime, do you mean slaked lime (Ca(OH)2), or will damp garden lime (CaCO3)?
