    Hi folk,

    I read lot of times that weighing chemicals with liquids is the most effective way, when don't have an accurate scale.

    I got some phenylethylamines (approx. 200mg), I would dose it and store for a few months.

    My question is : can I use an alcoholic solution to dilute my phen's, dose it and stock it ?
    What kind of alcoohol is advisable ?
    How long can I stock the stuff ?

    my friend uses water 1mg/1ml easy dose hard to screw up even when high
    and keeps it frozen untill he wants to use it. a few hours at
    room temp does the trick. So he usually thaws it the night before
    planning any research.



    Note:

    my friend drinks very little hates the taste thats why he uses water.

    My friend was wondering if he could use 99%iso to disolve the Research Chemical and
    then take known dose out evoporate the iso and have a powder dose left?



    anyone know if this is possible? would you be able to evoparate other alcohols because of the water content?

    Hi QGdoxl !

    Thanks for your feedback !

    Do you think that your friend's method is effective for both phenylethylamines and tryptamines ??

    When my friend orders his Research Chemical he gets an MSDS (material data saftey
    sheet) and that will tell you how soluble it is in what mediums.



    So far my friend has had no problems with 2c-i and 2c-e
