    ok, I was testing something out today. He found
    something amazing. He was going to try to add sodium nitrite to
    phenibute and then add some hcl to deaminate the molecule. Immediatly
    after adding the phenibut to the sodium nitrite the mixture turned
    blue, fizzed, emitted NOx gas and I was left with a green oily
    substance, which was not miscable with water. Any ideas?

    The reaction mixture was room temperature when the phenibut was added,
    not over an ice bath. I later added the hcl just to see what happened
    and the reaction continue to proceed.

    The reaction should not have happened before the hcl was added should
    it? Am I missing something? Did I not account for what the
    phenyl ring might do to the Gaba molecule?

    After the addition of hcl the green oily substance disappeared and a orange aquious solution was left

    I think I figured it out, maybe it is because the phenibut is an hcl salt.
