    aright, I am aware of this topic

    https://drugs-forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29652

    and its excelent, but I did a more elaborate acid base extraction and wishes to share, so here goes.

    mods: if you want to merge please do, im posting here so that it will get some replies by people more experienced.

    the procedure is in the atached file, to big to post it straight away

    any questions etc ask away, something I didnt put in the file was that the basification process was done in an ice bath. I didnt want to take the chance of loosing MDMA in the water (well wanted to minimize in any case) both time did it in an ice bath, though isnt sure that it does work.

    mind you this does not completely remove active cuts, they all have very simmilar pka's and solubility properties as mdma, but it does help, swim tried the product had a much mellower, less speedy high and far less post roll crash (actually the crash was just an overwhelming sleepiness not the "feel like shit" dopamine crash it usually has)

    in any case it was a fun thing to do and at the very least you will know how MUCH of anything you are taking...

    Is there any chance of the solvent leaving behind some kind of poisonous traces after evaporation? Just seeing as acetone is a poisonous substance, could it not potentially "poison" the MDMA? Waking up in hospital or dying from acetone poisoning after the whole venture was only done in order to minimize risk in the first place, would suck balls. Is this a risk factor?

    The risk is negligible, acetone is a volatile it will change state to a vapor leaving little or no residue.

    You are more at risk of being overcome by vapor or a fuel air ignition through bad ventilation then any toxicity from residual solvents.

    I have repacked the Purification Tek as a modern pdf web document with support for scaling on smart phones and Android OS

    Good effort for knocking this up. I can see the intention is good.

    However, it needs rewriting in order for it to be usable for an average user.

    The processes listed in this document are relatively simple. They could be carried out by pretty much anyone.

    Unfortunately the average reader is baffled as this document is laden with unnecesary chemistry jargon.

    It would be easier to follow without the pictures. Their quality is very poor.

    There are also a few points in the document I picked up on:

    I would question this. Based on what source?

    This doesnt make sense to me.

    Also you cant form large crystal shards from Racemic MDMA unless you resolve the isomers.

    It can be any colour, crystal or powder this is misleading.

    What is your source for these measurements?
