In this video I burn antimony in bromine and by doing so prepare antimony(III) bromide. I then dissolve it in HBr and combine it with a solution of ammonium bromide in HBr and sulfuric acid. However, instead of the black ammonium hexabromoantimonate I ended up with a mysterious green compound. Turns out this is a great way to turn antimony metal into antimony trioxide though! When life gives you lemons... :-)

In this video I prepare the very fluorescent cesium uranyl chloride. I also demonstrate a superior method for synthesizing alkali uranates from molten alkali chloride combined with a lesser amount of alkali nitrate.

This is NOT the 1000 YT sub special which should be up by tomorrow. I would NEVER make a safety video count as an actual chemistry video. :-) This video is one that I have put off making for a long time but with all the stuff going on right now I think that this is a good time to put this out there. And since it's a rainy day which is getting in the way of the experiment I want to do it seemed like a good time to do it.

In this video I show how uranyl sulfate is prepared from uranium trioxide which itself was made using the method shown in the previous video. Uranyl sulfate is VERY useful since it can be used to prepare a very wide range of uranyl salts by metathesis reactions with barium salts. The alkali uranates are different from the diuranates we've previously seen. They have a formula R2UO4 where R is Na or K (R can also be Rb and Cs).

If you are interested in obtaining element samples as discussed in the video then go to this link and then message the seller. The item in this link is NOT what I was talking about even though it's made of uranium. Just message this dude and he will send you a list of everything he has.

In this video I dissolve 5 grams of depleted uranium metal shavings in red fuming nitric acid to produce a crude uranyl nitrate solution. Not being 100% sure what final form this uranyl nitrate is going to take before using it for further experiments this video covers only the dissolution of the metal to produce the solution. I will filter the solution through glass wool, evaporate to remove as much excess HNO3 as possible, before using the solution to make some uranyl compounds. As things stand now the plan is to produce ammonium uranyl carbonate and hydroylamine uranate.

In this video I wanted to share some of the things that I learned studying the history of chemistry and laboratory alchemy as a practical science. The alchemical theory of matter is what pre-dated the atomic theory of matter and if you don't know that matter is made of atoms the alchemical theory of matter does have a logic to it. I do not claim to be an expert on the subject merely someone who has studied practical laboratory alchemy for a few years and who can look at it from the perspective of a modern chemist.

People in the past are just as smart as they are today it's simply that their theories were not as advanced as ours. As such they don't deserve the reputation they have among modern scientific circles as a bunch of charlatans and fools. I wanted to briefly explore this fascinating aspect of chemistry's history and show how even today a study of their methods is not unwarranted. ;-)

Diclaimer: I am not advocating for any kind of spiritual view in this video. I personally think that the material universe is all there is and I don't believe in a god or gods, spirits, demons, ghosts, magic powers, psychic powers, or any of that occult rubbish. Nothing against you, dear reader, if you do but I looked for these things for 27 years of my life and I did not find them. Either I am extraordinarily inept or they simply aren't there. But you do you my friend and more power to you! :-)

Synthesis of Dinitrotetramminenickel(II)

In this video I prepare dinitrotetramminenickel(II) from nickel(II) chloride hexahydrate. This synthesis could also begin with nickel(II) carbonate or nickel(II) acetate although if beginning with the acetate some acetic acid should still be added to prevent hydrolysis (according to the textbook anyways).

This video is a follow up on Random Experiments Int.'s video on tin(IV) iodide. In that video he made mention of the compound that is the subject of this video. He said that he would have tried making it but he did not have any RbI. As luck would have it I had both RbI and SnI4 in my inventory already. After discussing it with him first and getting his blessing I went ahead and made up some azeotropic HI (the only thing I lacked to try the experiment) and gave making the compound a try. It's not a compound I would make twice which is why this video is done in a "show and tell" style. The SnI4 fumes are amongst the worst I have EVER dealt with! It may look like a happy bright orange crystal sitting there in its jar but heat it up and holy fucking shit. But trust me you get all the gory details. :-)

In this video I first synthesize a solution of mercuric nitrate from mercuric oxide and nitric acid. I then precipitate out mercuric thiocyanate. The potassium nitrate solution is decanted, the solid is washed, and then combined with another solution of potassium thiocyanate before being boiled. This produces a solution of potassium tetrathiocyanatomercurate(II). I then add a solution of cobalt chloride to precipitate out cobalt tetrathiocyanatomercurate(II). As I was making the video I found some online discussions that pointed to cobalt tetrathiocyanatomercurate and mercury tetrathiocyanatocobaltate being the same compound. I found an a prep video of mercury tetrathiocyanatocobaltate so I could compare that compound with the product of my synthesis. They were identical in appearance.

In this video I make potassium hexathiocyanatochromate(III) from chromium(III) nitrate and potassium thiocyanate. After evaporating the solution down the impure solid is extracted into ethyl acetate to separate the product from the potassium nitrate also produced in the reaction. The ethyl acetate solution is then evaporated down to obtain the final product.

In this video I carry out a synthesis I found in the book Inorganic Laboratory Preparations by Gert Schlessinger (link below) on page 95. Nickel(II) cyanide is precipitated from nickel(II) chloride hexahydrate solution with a solution of potassium cyanide. The nickel(II) cyanide is separated, washed, and then dissolved in another solution of potassium cyanide. The solution is filtered and then evaporated down to produce the pure potassium tetracyanonickelate(II) product.

Once the solution of hexabromoplatinic acid is prepared it is dried using the Redneck Rotovap.

In this video I prepare a solution of mercury(II) nitrate from elemental mercury. This is then broken into two portions: a larger one for the production of mercuric oxide and a smaller one to be reacted with sodium iodide to first form mercuric iodide and then a solution of sodium tetraiodomercurate. This solution was then tested against a few different metal cations but thallium(I) tetraiodomercurate was the only one to precipitate. Then a solution of cadmium iodide and sodium iodide were combined to form a clear solution of sodium tetraiodocadmate. Addition of silver nitrate precipitated out silver(I) tetraiodocadmate. The thermochromic properties of the thallium(I) tetraiodomercurate and silver(I) tetraiodocadmate were then explored.

Ever since I was a boy I have dreamed of building my own chemistry lab. I wanted it to be a kind of self-assembled chemistry set put together piece by piece by a professional chemist so it wouldn't be lame. Eventually I grew up and became my own professional chemist and after years of hard work and sacrifice the dream has finally become a reality. Join me as I investigate some of the more interesting aspects of the central science of chemistry including organic synthesis, inorganic synthesis, reagent synthesis and use, instrument-free analytical techniques and procedures, and much more.
