Oldfag /chem/ist here.

I just wanted to let you all know that I've found A Wizard. He is alive and well in a crypto discord.

He's also working on a supersoldier serum.

How would one go about a conversion synthesis of Cannabinol (CBN) from 98% pure delta9-THC distillate? Is there an economic method to do such a thing without an expensive lab or advanced chemical skills?

organic chemistry will teach you that bromination is a method to turn cyclohexene into benzene
industrial chemistry will teach you that method is only valid up to 5g on a lab scale and impractical for real life

wokest brain organic chemistry will tell you that since cannabinol has no enantiomers, you can do a very, very easy full synthesis from industrial chemicals like we do with 90% of all the drugs we have. if you want CBN on a large scale, total synthesis is probably the way to go (unlike with THC that has multiple chiral centers)

ancap chemistry tells you to sell your THC distillate and buy CBN with your money. or you can use THC to buy bitcoins and then lose all your money instead. woke machine broke

THC synthesis from gerinol and citral is actually a relatively simple process and the weird thing about that is that I grow really dank geraniums, I've been selectively breeding them for years as a hobby. What a lucky coincidence right?

Sup /chem/,

I'm taking general physics 2 this semester and I have the same professor I had for physics 1. Now it's just algebra-based, and I've been through calculus, so I was able to breeze through Newtonian mechanics and all that. However this semester is about electromagnetism, circuits, and optics. All topics I have zero exposure to. Now the professor is new to teaching at the college level, his experience is teaching middle-schoolers. He is very (obliviously) condescending and talks to his class of adults like they are 12. He constantly makes sexist or racist jokes (but on the fence enough to not get in trouble) and is always ranting about his personal life or past experiences. When he finally does an actual problem on the board he always struggles with basic spelling and arithmetic, and often fundamentally misunderstands the physics concept he is trying to teach. Several times last semester I had to quietly approach him after class and explain how everything he lectured that day was flawed and the next lecture he would try to fix his fuckup but he ended up just giving everyone lots of freebies on the exams.

My concern is that in this new semester of material I will not get a good exposure or foundation in these topics and might be lost in future courses. Especially electricity and circuits, I really want to learn more about that. I am worried he will teach me some fundamental concepts backward or something. Other than pre-reading the text before class what would you guys recommend to get through this course when the professor is a complete idiot and in my opinion not qualified?

>I'm taking general physics 2

Why would you ever do that? Calculus based physics isn't any harder and you just shot yourself in the foot for future course selection.

>My concern is that in this new semester of material I will not get a good exposure or foundation in these topics and might be lost in future courses

What future courses require algebra-based physics as a prerequisite? No physics or chemistry or engineering course would normally accept it as a substitution.

>what would you guys recommend to get through this course when the professor is a complete idiot and in my opinion not qualified?

Have you tried switching into the calculus-based physics 2 course? That would seem to be like the best course of action; you'll get a different (and better) professor and a stronger foundation in E&M since many of the concepts are only naturally expressible by calculus (in fact, most of vector calculus was invented for E&M).

I would guess that the reason why the professor is so bad is probably because the college see algebra-based physics as a remedial class for weak students outside of STEM to fulfill their technical gen-ed requirements and doesn't want to spend resources on it....

idk who tf wrote that but it's bad sorry to say. here's a real tested tek:

>(all steps to be done under a red photographic light)

>1.) 8 kg of HBWR seeds are ground to a fine powder with the assistance of dry ice or liquid nitrogen.

[note: cold makes the seeds brittle, good for grinding]

>2.) to the seeds is added a chilled (30*F) acidic methanol (80% MeOH/DH2O) solution of tartaric acid (saturated). the ammount needed is just enough to cover
the powder with 1cm of fluid and is allowed to stand cold for 24 hours in the dark. more acidic methanol may be added as the seed powder absorbes it.

>3.) after 24 hours the methanol is removed by vaccume to compleate dryness. the seeds are then made into a slurry with DMF/DCM and loaded into a large column,
the DMF/DCM is allowed to drain through and more is added until test drops evapurate with no residue. save the DMF/DCM filtate.

tartaric acid and lots of other undesirable crap dissolves in DMF/DCM, but salts, including LSA tartrate, do not. we convert the LSA to a salt and then remove excess tartaric acid and most other soluble components of the seed.

2 forces, force of gravity Fg down and air resistance Fair up combine to form Fnet. Newton's 3 Laws says Fnet = mass * acceleration which is given as a=2m/s^2. So Fnet = 1.0kg * 2.0m/s^2 = 2.0 N. Force of gravity is Fg = mass * g where g is 9.8m/s^2 so Fg = 1.0kg * 9.8m/s^2 = 9.8N. Fg - Fair = Fnet so Fair = Fg - Fnet = 9.8N - 2.0N = 7.8N.

Yes. It's not specifically banned by anything I know of. He's been slowly taking a few mgs from it from work every every week and throwing it in a pile at his house. I can tell him to sell it on ebay or on his local craiglist, too.

sup /chem/

I have a small elements collection and I needed to know about the storage of a small amount of mercury...

I have (attached) glass vial bought from Hobby Lobby for like 2$. I am wondering if it would hold a small amount of mercury. We're talking 5mL maximum, probably less (may fill up an inch of the bottom of the vial). The top glass cork will be wrapped with a few layers of parafilm from my lab. It will be on a sort of "display" shelf, not behind any glass but out of reach to be knocked over. I am more worried about the vapors that could possibly form over time than any spillage.

Any input would be appreciated,
Thanks

and seal the ends using a propane torch. look up "ampoule sealing"

That way you can still play around with the mercury in a fun size. When not in use, wrap the test tube in a piece of aluminum foil coated bubble wrap insert. If the mercury escapes, it'll go right into the aluminum which will make it less hazardous as it's a mercury capture mechanism. For spills, use powdered sulfur. You can buy that on ebay in like 100g quantities.

Thank you for the replies. I ordered myself some of the shown test tubes and am not sure how long they will take to arrive to me. I currently have a very small amount (barley covering the bottom) held in the glassware shown, with several layers of parafilm and it is being kept outside. I believe this should sufficiently hold until I am able to make ampules.

I actually miss A Wizard too until Vehk chased him off and we got /420/ to ban the IP addresses until all his VPNs expired. Then when every post at him was hostile, he finally quit. He was only really bad on /med/.

Totally forgot /tesla/ was a thing. Same thing with /diy/. /chem/ i'm here because it's a containment thread revolving around Vehk, Press, and high kids from /weed/ that get spooped about quantum physics.

I wanna discuss opiate science but I'd much rather just do that in real life. Green Fox was helpful, too. But anyone without drugs as a tether eventually ends up leaving this god-forsaken place. Too bad I'll probably need opiates for the rest of my life (even if it's only a few times every month). Realistically, I could start posting good threads about opiate science and other drug science, but I'd much rather just talk to people IRL about that and who can give insight into my orgo questions and techniques.

In any case, you can call me son if you want. I used to go on the /dis/ or /weed/ much more and didn't decide posting on /chem/ until I tripped up. Not sure how long ago that was (and don't really want to know). Maybe a /tesla/ /chem/ merge would be helpful. All in all, it serves as a good backup board once tha futoor's /sci/ board goes down inevitably.

I would agree with this. Decomposition, denaturation, and bacterial/fungal consumption would render blood into basic chemicals. As mentioned, full of potassium salts along with sodium/chloride/iron/copper/etc salts. The proteins would be be broken down into various organic chemicals or utilized by the local flora. Any saccharides floating around in the blood would be consumed almost immediately; nature likes sugars.

This is just my own speculation.
