Hmm the emulsions are not clearing up
    #4700375 - 09/23/05 02:10 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I am in the middle of a DMT extraction and I added some warm naptha to the basic solution and shook and let it sit for 5 days and i can see t2o distinct layers but the top is not totally clear it is brownish. The top level is some clear liquid and some brown liquid but not totally mixed because i think the clear is a non polar and the brown a polar. How can I get it so just the clear naptha is on top?

This might help(..?):

A. Sometimes adding a lot of salt and gentle stirring will make the polar layer more polar and help with emulsions.

B. Add more organic solvent.

C. Filter solutions again through a cotton filter several times. A paper filter will not work.

D. Test and increase the pH.

E. In most cases the solvent layer will have slight tint or may sometimes appear completely clear. If you want an early test of your extraction simply evaporate a small amount in a glass dish. The residue left should smell a bit synthetic (a smell like plastic.) This smell is a trait of your tryptamine.


From Qt's extraction guide (step 9)

Adding salt helps a great deal. Also putting it under a heat bath may help a great deal as well. Next time don't shake it just turn it over end over end. Doing that is sufficient enough to mix the solvent with the basic solution thoroughly but not enough to cause as much of a emulsion layer as you are experiencing. Also Next time make the solution more basic. PH 13-14 is best.
