hexane for mescaline extraction?
    #3585684 - 01/05/05 08:58 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Would hexane be a viable solvent for a simple extraction of alkaloids from San Pedro? It would seem a nice -though relatively expensive- option due to it being nonpolar, nontoxic, and easy to boil off. Why don't I see it used then? Does it just plain not work?

It would probably work well but xylene or toluene work just as well and are much cheaper.

I wish i could get my hands on that stuff for dmt extractions though.

You don't need to end in freebase in mescaline extractions so you don't need to actually evaporate any non-polar solvent.
Unless you're going for that tek that evaporates the NPS to yield mescaline carbonate. But salting out and evaporating water/acid is cheaper and yields a much purer product anyway.

You can go to a walk in chem supply house and order some. They dont ask to see id. Just be able to say what you are doing. And DMT recrystalization is not what you are gonna be doing. It will not arouse suspicion in small abounts like 500ml, which will be enough for plenty of DMT recrystalizations.

But its overkill and unnecessary for a mesc extraction.
