Alcohols react readily with acidified aqueous nitrous acid solutions to generate alkyl nitrites. The reaction sets up an equilibrium, which can be driven to the right by the use of a large excess of the alcohol or by removal of the alkyl nitrite by distillation, since alkyl nitrites have lower boiling points than do the corresponding alcohols.

D. L. Williams wrote a chemistry book in 2004 that included the above quote. He says later that typically alkyl nitrites are distilled as they form in order for the reaction to reach completion. A large excess of alcohol will drive the reaction to the product, but then the product needs to be distilled to separate it from the base alcohol.

It's interesting to note that JJ Platinum used to claim it was triple distilled. Perhaps this was Joe's method of making consistently good poppers.

JJ label text was 'triple FILTERED', not distilled.

Complete BS - Joe's method of making consistently good poppers

So many I bought were complete duds way back when. I even remember friends back then complaining. This is early on so not like the duds were not legit aka counterfeit. I used to travel for work and bought duds in half of the states. Yet always somebody praising the old stuff like it was something special. Half of Magic Joe's was crap along with the other stuff that was available. I still remember my first bottle of LockerRoom I bought in SanFricko - it was a dud. WTF!

If anyone is interested in what Ken thinks is somehow valuable information, the link is:

Notably, the part of Ken's post he's calling a 'quote' has no quotation marks (as if it were text from his hallucinations), while the part of his post that says 'He says later that typically alkyl nitrites are distilled as they form in order for the reaction to reach completion.' I can't find anywhere in the book that implies a SIMULTANEOUS preparation and distillation.

That last part of Ken's post seems to be pure conjecture on his part, somewhat wrapped up in a 'quote' from a book.

Funny stuff coming from a guy who's opinion is 'screw chemistry'

"JJ Gold Label Triple Distilled 30ml"

A recent product from Locker Room. Easy to Google.

Those would be counterfeits there ace; I thought you had contacts at locker room?

Gold and platinum original bottles say triple filtered, and the at copy mentions filtering with activated charcoal.

The counterfeit bottles on some shoes say triple distilled

Alkyl nitrite distillation or filtering it is only marketing bullshit.
There is no need for that kind of operations.

It is distilled in order to obtain a pure, more condensed product and thus more powerful
