boiling point of heroin temperature needed


I am doing scholarly research on vaporization of heroin.

Does anyone know the temperature at which the drug boils / vaporizes?

This is a study regarding a vaporizer/heating unit designed to be used with as many recreational drugs as possible. The unit would have a cylindrical chamber about 11mm across and 75mm down that heats materials placed inside to an adjustable temperature, in order to vaporize the active ingredients out of the drug.

Wikipedia and Google - didn't find the boiling temperature in a lot of searches.

Chemfinder - no joy, no vaporization or evaporation temperatures are listed.

Erowid - I already searched but if you have a link to specific pages I missed I'd appreciate being shown what I overlooked.

MSDS does not seem to cover vaporization point or boiling point. I just read a ton of them. I even had a friend look up MSDS sheets from the database of the international pharmaceutical company she works for, which handles cocaine as a raw material. Still no joy, no boiling point listed, no vaporization point listed, sometimes a melting point is listed but that doesn't help me.

I realize most people using h use foil with torch lighters and don't know exactly how high they're heating this, but the info has to be out there somewhere. If anyone has a clue where I should look next I'd really appreciate this.

Thank you all for any assistance you can give!

Re: boiling point of heroin temperature needed

Chemfinder lists the following for Diacetylmorphine:

mp 173°, bp(12) 272-274°

And for the hydrochloride salt:

mp 243-244° (no bp listed, but it must obviously be higher than this)

Post Quality Evaluations:
Helpful and informed post, excellent find.
Here is the data and concise as it should be. Thanks for fiding it.

Re: boiling point of heroin temperature needed

Depending on the process and purity of the H it will be slightly different, but in the range listed in post above ^. Reccomend getting a hotplate with a digi thermometer and putting some H on their, and finding out.
