Psilocybin solubility
    #6807411 - 04/19/07 05:01 AM (10 years, 7 months ago)

I read on Wiki that psilocybin is most soluble in water, so why do people use everclear for extractions over water?

I've searched but couldn't find anything.

According to the Merck (sp?) data sheet, it's -most- soluble in methanol, hence its use in extractions.
Even then, if methanol were second or third, the alcohol evaporates much more rapidly than water, so condensing the mixture (the really important part of a good alcohol extraction) to a tiny volume is made quite easy. Another reason (or -the- reason, if Merck is wrong (hah)) for using it in extraction teks.
Oh, and it's consumable, unlike isopropyl.

Okay, that clears that up! :wink:

I realised the bit about residue and evaporation rate, but it seems the Wiki article is incorrect.
