Where To

So how does one go about beginning an underground laboratory The answer is they don't. You see that would be illegal. Hypo-thetically though, one would need 3 things a combination heating-magnetic stirring plate, chemicals and glassware. The stirplate is no problem. The chemicals and glassware are sort of a problem. But Strike is going to go over how all of these things can be bought, substituted for or made. Good production can be had with crude, makeshift equipment. But believe Strike, the...

How To Make

Strike is sure that an imaginative person can look around her everyday surroundings and think of something that can act as a replacement for some of those hard to get glassware items and other gizmos. As it so happens Strike has thought about this too. Here are some of the more likely ways that these things can be made. The best replacement for borosilicate glassware is stainless steel. Stainless steel takes the heat, won't break, and, most importantly, is about as resistant to chemical...

Girls In Da Hood

Some of the reactions that the chemist may use will just naturally smell bad. Usually if something smells bad then it's probably bad for the chemist to smell it. Some reactions are, by design, supposed to vent bad things that, when unchanneled, have nowhere to go but into the living room of the chemist. Sometimes there is no guarantee that a method will go as planned. There may be a mistake or unforseen side reaction and some of the most deadly shit imaginable can be evolved. That is why the...

Methyl Amine

144, 145 No one should be buying this stuff because it is extremely watched and extremely easy to make. It's best to make this chemical in large batches. In the reaction flask of a simple distillation apparatus is placed 2000g of 40 formaldehyde and 1000g of ammonium chloride. The mixture is slowly heated to 104 C during which time all of the ammonium chloride will dissolve and the solution will be a bright, clear golden color. Lots of sparkly C02 bubbles will be evolved and as the solution...

Isosafrole or Propenylbenzene From Grignard Reagent

The solution is hydrolyzed with ammonium chloride just like safrole was and then isolated just the same to give an -hydroxy intermediate (please don't ask, but the yield is 81 ). What the chemist has is an alcohol intermediate which is not what she wants. If she were to flick off that OH group then a double bond will form in its place and isosafrole or propenylbenzene will be borne 26 , So what the evil chemist does is place 60g of the alcohol intermediate...

Preparation of the Grignard Reagent

The preparation of the bromobenzodioxole or bromobenzene is going to be the same no matter which one is used and no matter which precursor the chemist wishes to make. This means that this first part needs to be done correctly. This first part of preparation that Strike is talking about is the creation of a Grignard reagent out of the bromo compound starting material 125,131-134 . Mr. Grignard earned a Nobel prize for this in 1912 so you can bet that it's a pretty good procedure. The procedure...

Build From Scratch

The methods in this book have thus far been presented under the assumption that precursors such as safrole, sassafras oil, benzal-dehyde etc. are still available. We know that safrole, isosafrole, piperonal, ephedrine, P2P and the like are currently schedule I controlled substances. Strike has no doubt that natural oils such as sassafras and nutmeg are going to eventually be banned as well. In anticipation of such an outcome, Strike is going to launch a preliminary strike against it. The...

Stuff That Defies Classification

These last three theoretical methods have no real kinship to any of the major categories or precursors. The first is the one that has caused Strike more despair than any other. It was once a Top Ten recipe in the first edition. But it was a reckless gamble on Strike's part and Strike paid for it. Here is what Strike wrote last year If you read the excellent book called Recreational Drugs by Professor Buzz 8 you may come across a little recipe in the amphetamine section for something called...

Syringaldehyde 35dimethoxy4hydroxybenzaldehyde [7

5-bromovanillirie (5mmol) is refluxed with EtOAc (3mmol) and CuBr (immol) in 5 M NaOMe MeOH (10 ml) for 14 hours. Classical work-up (addition of water and acidification followed by extraction of the phenol) leads to pure syringaldehyde (95 ). When starting from the more soluble 5-bromovanilline dimethyl acetal, reaction is achieved within 2 hours (yield 98 ). Preparation of this acetal is probably not worth the extra work. Substituting EtONa for MeONa seems to work, too, producing...

Methamphetamines From Amphetamines

METHOD 1 26 -- 8g of perfectly fine, shouldn't-be-messed with MDA or benzedrine freebase is mixed with 100mL methylformate in a small pipe bomb. The sealed bomb is placed in boiling water or a 100 C oven for 12 hours, cooled and the solvent removed by distillation to give approximately 8g of N-formyl intermediate. Yes, that's the same kind of intermediate that one gets from the Leuckart reaction, and this recipe is going to employ the LiAIH4 way of stripping the double bonded oxygen of the...

MDPhenyl2Propanol

And in the recipe above, Vogel want's to get rid of a secondary alcohol just like the one on MD-P2Pol and replace it with a bromine. Wait a minute you may say, That isn't a double bond like AMPHETAMINES & METH AMPHETAMINES FROM BROMOSAFROLE & PHENYLISOPROPYLBROMIDE With bromo or iodo compound in hand it is time to quit and turn one's self over to the proper authorities. Wait There are a few who would continue. Most likely in the following manner. METHOD 1 The bromine on the safrole or...

MMDAMescaline

Cold (0 C), 70 methanol, and dried in vacuo at 50 C overnight to give 218.5 grams (95 ) of 5-bromovanillin as pale yellow crystals, mp 163-164 C. To vanillin (15.2g, 0.1 mol) in glacial acetic acid (75 ml) is added bromine (17.6g, 0.11 mol). After stirring for 1h, the reaction mixture is diluted with ice water (200ml), the precipitated solid is filtered, washed with water, and dried to give 5-bromovanillin, yield 22. Og (95 ) The synthesis of MMDA in Pihkal is one of the longest and most...

Semidirect Am I Nation Of Safrole

The dream of every X chemist is to get that amine function directly on the safrole molecule without having to go thru any intermediate such as the ketone of MD-P2P or the bromine of bromosafrole. But Strike can tell you right now that that is very, very tough (that is why there ain't no methods for it). About the only article Strike has ever found for the actual placement of an amine directly on a terminal alkene (a.k.a. safrole) is the following 79 Amination of propylene The conversion of...

Methylamine HCI from Formaldehyde and Ammonium Chloride

This is the least desirable of all three processes What do you mean by that This is really easy to do And the yield are fine . The yields are lower than the two rearrangements, and it requires substantial labor to get a decently pure product. Not labor as in difficult but labor as in a lot of it. I would suggest this only for those who have a large supply of Formaldehyde available to them (note - N. Coffey found formaldehyde at Home Depot - look for Mildewcide and dissolve it in enough water to...

Pyrocatechol From Guaiacol

METHOD 1 101, 103 Before a chemist attempts this procedure she should read both of the referenced articles to understand why Strike has included a hybrid apparatus like the one shown in figure 14. Into the reaction flask is added 912g crystalline guaiacol and 1500g regular 48 HBr which is then slowly heated to reflux. The tepid water condenser is there to allow the bro-momethane that is formed to leave the reaction flask but is still 'cold' enough to keep the other reactants in the reaction...

Shrimp Acapulco

Beef sirloin or tenderloin, cut into 1 pieces 1 3 cup peanut oil 2 tablespoons soy sauce the juice of 3-4 limes (or lemons) 2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into tiny pieces and put in freezer V2 tablespoon vinegar 1-2 ounces Grande Marnier (or any orange-flavored liqueur) 1-2 tablespoons of crushed pineapple with juice (canned is fine) V2 tablespoon soy sauce Alternate beef and shrimp on skewers. Mix the peanut oil, soy sauce and lime juice in a bowl to use a basting sauce. On a nice, hot coal or...

Phase One Chems

Palladium Chloride Cuprous Chloride DMF 500 grams 53 grams 300 grams 2187.5 mLs 312.5 mLs 100 grams 10.6 grams 60 grams 437.5 mLs 62.5 mLs The above reagents ok the safrole and H20 aren't reagent are weighed or measured accordingly. The flask is securely clamped into place on the magnetic stirrer. Add the DMF and H20. Start stirring, and then slowly add the palladium chloride and cuprous chloride. If you add the powders first then the liquids you'll have problems with the stir bar finding a...

Isosafrole From Piperonal

26 This will work just as well in converting benzaldehyde to pro-penylbenzene as it will in converting piperonal. This is like the millionth method Strike has pulled from the reference 19. This was the most street-applicable article Strike has ever come across, but the greatest thing about this article's recipes is that THEY WORK Strike means to say they work big time A lot of this has to do, no doubt, with the fact that the most accomplished amphetamine chemists co-authored the work Drs....

Other Precursors

You people won't believe the potential amphetamine precursors just sitting around in naturally occurring oils and essential oils 6, 7 Strike can't believe Strike can actually quote Strike's own book. That is so freaky . Most of these things will make amphetamines that are much more potent than X. It is also possible to play around with some of the little side groups on these to eventually make X or some other interesting psychotomimetics. With few exceptions these precursors are all substituted...

Piperonal or Benzaldehyde From Chloromethyl Intermediate

The benzylchloride compound made in the previous recipe can be converted to piperonal or benzaldehyde using a chemical called hexamine 137 p817, 37 p700, 136 . Hexamine, also known as methenamine or hexamethylenetetramine, is a weird looking chemical that is easily made from formaldehyde but is better off being purchased. In a flask with stirring is added 158g piperonyl chloride or 126g -241 - benzyl chloride, 140g hexamine and either 500mL 50 aqueous acetic acid or 500mL 60 aqueous ethanol....

Sodium Borohydride NaBH4

151 This catalyst should really be purchased rather than made because its use in underground chemistry is limited and is hardly watched at all if not ever. This may change considering its potential as a precursor to the NaBH3CN in Strike's 1 method of choice. There are a lot of ways to make this catalyst, but the least involved is the one using boron trifluoride. What the method calls for is an apparatus called an autoclave. You know how using a vacuum causes the absence of pressure to make...

Safrole

Where to begin Where to begin Well, starting with this chapter is a good idea Every amphetamine is a chemical. And since your government doesn't allow one to own or buy the chemical itself, one has to go about making the amphetamine from legal or sometimes illegal chemicals that are as close to the final drug as possible. For ecstasy, that starting chemical is almost always Safrole. Safrole is the 1 starting material for making X today. As a pure chemical it is a schedule I controlled substance...

Pnitropropenes

The next major category of precursors, apart from the phenylace-tones, are the p-Nitropropenes. One can see the two representative examples for X and meth in the little drawing below As you can see, there is a nitrogen right in the exact place where one wants it. That is definitely a step in the right direction. But Strike was not very keen on these intermediates because there was really only one decent way to make them that Strike favored and the ways to make final product out of them were not...

Amphetamines And M Eth Am Ph Etam Ines From Phenylacetones

Homemade Crystal Meth Setup Condenser

With all of that MD-P2P and or P2P lying around, there's a good possibility that an evil underground chemist might turn it into final product. Dear God The thought of it just sickens Strike But what can ya do And what againx were those final products Why it's these suckers right below So without further ado, here's the recipes you've been looking for METHOD 1 Strike's extra special, blue ribbon favorite. Guaranteed to put the starch in your socks This is the cleanest, highest yielding procedure...

Isosafrole

At this point the chemist has what can be loosely considered as pure safrole. She can use this for some methods or can convert it to isosafrole for others. Isosafrole is the runner-up precursor for making X. It cannot be found in nature but rather is made from almost exclusively safrole. Strike had previously written that about the best recipe for making isosafrole was from boiling safrole with concentrated KOH Potassium Hydroxide in ethanol. This was actually the only recipe Strike knew of at...

Safrole or Allylbenzene From Grignard Reagent

All the glassware from the making of the Grignard reagent remains exactly the same with the Grignard reagent still resting in the reaction flask. The only change is that the ice bath tray is re moved. Into the separatory funnel is placed 60g of anhydrous al-lylbromide Br-CH2-CH CH2, see chemicals section for how to make and this is then slowly dripped into the Grignard solution. Another vigorous reaction will start and the addition is regulated so that things do not get out of control. After...

Methylamine Methylamine HCl via Schmidt Rearrangement

This reaction is quite similar to the Hofmann Rearrangement, but it reacts a Carboxylic Acid with Hydrazoic Acid to generate the desired amine. Like the Hofmann, it has wide application and versatility, yet also has excellent yields in many cases. It will also preserve the chirality of the starting Acid Anhydride, which is not of interest to us, but an important fact to note. The restrictions on this process are that the starting Carboxylic Acid must not adversely react with either Sulfuric...

Crystallization

All of the recipes in this book give ecstasy freebase oil as the final product. Although this can be used as is, it is much more preferable to crystallize it into a distributable, usable form. To do this one is going to place a hydrochloride HCI onto the NH2 group of the MDA or amphetamine molecule. This is easy to do and does not affect the drug in any way. In fact, if one were to look at the active ingredients label on almost any pill bottle in the pharmacy one can see that the drug therein...

Allylbenzene From Benzene

This is the infamous Friedel-Crafts method and works in a manner similar to the previously mentioned method where P2P was made by merging benzene and chloroacetone using AICI3. This method is for speed makers only and is not recommended for conversion of 1,3-benzodioxole. However, this should work in a limited way on catechol. The conversion factor is very low but that isn't a major concern of speed chemists because cheap old benzene is the precursor and all of that benzene that isn't converted...

Our First Ever Ephedrine Section

Why did it take Strike so long to get with the program Because Strike does not do speed and Strike has never worked on ephed-rine. But for some crazy reason there are a few people out there that do. Since Strike has nothing to say about it, Strike bows to the superior knowledge of those that do. Naturally there are a trillion reduction methods for ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine to final product. These methods have been used and abused ad nauseam. So as to not tread on the...

Phenylacetones

So let's say, for instance, that some deranged lunatic did the exact opposite of what this book says, and went ahead and got some equipment, a couple of chemicals and some safrole, isosafrole and or the precursor of their choice. They may very well decide to do something to it to get it farther along the path to final product. Well, currently on the place called Earth, the most widely made precursor for X and amphetamine production is the phenylace-tone. For crystal meth the precursor is called...

Rhodiums Chapter

This is a chapter written entirely by a chemist named Rhodium with guest speaker Osmium . Rhodium is, as far as Strike is concerned, the world's leading underground scientist. Knowledgeable in nearly every aspect of drug chemistry, this chemist has been the savior for many a person that was lost. Here he has contributed some new reactions for your reading pleasure. Radical stuff that you can bet will become the next wave of synthesis protocol. The rest of this chapter is Rhodium's voice....

Bromosafrole Phenylisopropylbromide

The third, and last, major category of X precursor is the halogen species. In the world of chemistry, scientists look to add things or change things with a molecule by exploiting 'functional groups'. So far we have been exploring the possibilities of the ketone functional group P2P and the nitro group P-Nitropropene . And although there are lots of different things that can be considered functional groups, the only one left that really has any broad utility for the underground chemist is the...
