MUST READ!!!!! -- PIC
    #568024 - 03/02/02 09:57 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Well... so I'm workin away in my flowhood, in which I use mad amounts of isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle for sterility, and my finger starts to tingle a bit... and its turning bright white!! So I went into the bathroom, and started to wash it. I figured I lit up my finger tip when I was flame sterilizing my scalpel, and it burned blue and I didn't see it. Washing with water burns hotter by the way. This white looked real strange man, like a chemical burn. Roughly 10 minutes earlier, I was handling a small jar of peroxide, I use to fill a syringe for various uses. Well... I thought that might have something to do with all this, so I took a bit of peroxide, and added a few sprays of isopropyl. I told my buddy to put his finger in the liquid ... and did she ever burn. We got our other roommate to do it too...



WARNING FOLKS. DON'T MIX H2O2 AND ALCOHOL AND GET IT ON YOUR SKIN. IT WILL FUCKING BURN YOU.

Oh yah, and if any chem freaks are out there, is that like a basic or acidic burn ?? what are the products of that reaction?? just to know whether u should but vinegar (fight club style) or like bleach or something. I spray down my whole arms with alcohol, so if I happened to spill peroxide on my arm it'd fuck it up real good...

H202 on your skin will "burn" it white whether or not you've mixed it with alcohol. I never thought to mix H202 and isopropyl alcohol together though. H202 3% is pretty diluted but still could react with various incompatible chemicals. Hydrogen peroxide is incompatible with the following: acetone, alkochols, aniline, copper, chromium, iron, most metals or their salts, combustible materials, organic materials, nitromethane.

You must have some real "special" friends if you got both of them to burn themselves after you did. Hey guys look I hurt myself you should too!!!

Mixing ammonia and bleach can be exciting too. If you can get your friends to do that you'll probably need to get new friends.

this has happened to me also, not as severe as what you have in the pics though.
yeah man, it burns like shit.
I knew that it had to do with alcohol, h2o2.

Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidant (breaks down into 2-H2O and O2), and isopropyl alcohol is a fuel. Not a good idea to mix them. The material safety data sheet for Isopropynol lists H2O2 as a chemical to "avoid", and states that a "possible explosive" will be formed if the two are mixed.

H2O2 will naturally bleech skin. That's why your skin turned white/pale.

Heh, I think you are slightly mistaken :smile:  I had put 3% h2o2 on cuts many times before, never has it turned skin white, never.  not like this, and not as fast as this.
it might 'lighten' skin, but never ahve i seen this happen.

This is very true. Old rockets and experimental jets used to use this combination (Hydrogen Peroxide and Alcohol) as fuel.

Hmm, not quite right...

The peroxide used for rocket fuel is concentrated, around 90% and is driven by a carrier gas(usually nitrogen under high pressure) through a silver mesh that acts as a catalyst, where the peroxide decomposes into water(steam) and oxygene under heat, this heat causes the gases to expand fast thus providing thrust when the gases expand through a laval-nozzle.

There is a second process also where this mixture of steam and oxygen is combined with a liquid fuel (for instance alcohol) in a combusting chamber and the hot combustion gases then propel the rocket.

So is that process detrimental to our envoirnment? Why couldn't we just use hygrogen peroxide, and oxygen to propel our cars, instead of burning gasoline which is causing global warming!!!

dude that would be fucked up. He'd chemical burn his whole body. That would hurt soo fucking bad. Didn't he claim that his skin is turning lighter becuase he sleeps in hyperbolic oxygen tents or something like that, and it fucks with the pigment of his skin?

Reminds me of the first time I decided to smear some phenol(carbolic acid) that I was working with, on some poison ivy, that was between my fingers and itching so bad, I could barely stand it. I forgot I put in on and about 15 minutes later my skin was exactly that bleached white chemical burned color. Sure stopped the poison ivy from itching though.

I've got some 12 per cent H202 that'll do the same thing to your skin,that I use to murder chiggers.

HAHHAHA. The strangest part of it was, all three of our hands looked completely normal (slight burn) after a couple of hours. It came on real strong real quick, and left just like that!
