if poppers are made by mixing specific ingredients together then how are they not all the same 95% or so purity and same strength

ive seen in china where they sell stuff they say is 20% and 40% they wont give me an answer of what they are doing

anyway it doesnt make any sence to me since you have to add specific ingredients together - how do they not all end up the same strength.

That is a good question! Where have you seen poppers with 20-40% strength? Sounds very unusual. Do you have a link please?

Poppers are made by a chemical process, I do not think that "mixing specific ingredients together" quite covers it! Aint' like Jamie Oliver mixing up a cake! I am no expert on this matter but I have heard that the skill of the chemist in the manufacturing process is important. I also heard (yey! rumors) that some formulas can be made from a by-product of another manufacturing procedure and they are a load of crap.

"to add specific ingredients together - how do they not all end up the same strength"

What about the quality and purity of those original ingredients though.

"I am no expert on this matter"

You should use that as a tag line. Perhaps someone can say how they are made...

alcohol (not rubbing please) + NaNO2 sodium nitrite + acid. Sometimes butylated linseed oil as hygroscopic stabilizer (urgh!)

isobutyl alcohol is agitated - adding de-ionized water at 10% weight - bring to to 10C - now add sodium nitrite - now SLOWLY hydrochloric acid is added stir for ten minutes then allow to stand stand for 30 - it will separate - add sodium bicarbonate + de-ionized H20 - stirs add calcium chloride. Those balls are alumina pellets I think.

Could be cool if Jamie Oliver had a show featuring poppers. Anyway you can't make it in a bathtub :-) so don't try.
