Anybody ever hear of this being used in the purification of cut cocaine? If so, what do you know?

I've heard of it being used to turn pseudoephedrine into methcathinone.....
Something like methamphetamine.... Erowid.

It is a very strong oxidizer which can spontaneously combust or explode when mixed with many organic compounds. Be very careful around this stuff.

Just another spore in the wind.

Yeah I have to stress what Seuss said: BE CAREFUL WITH THE STUFF!

It can and will spontaneously ignite if spilled on or mixed with a good number of organic compounds.

DO NOT under any circumstances let this stuff come into contact with ANY organic fuels (oil, gasoline, any petroleum products, alcohols, ect) as it can literally explode with just a touch.

It's also rather poisonous, from what I remember.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
