In this video I dismantle my fume hood in preparation for:

"Fume Hood 2.0 - The Big Suck-Suck"

I also uploaded this video to make some announcements that some of you may not be aware of:

1. My fume hood is out of commission, which means I will likely be focusing on rebuilding it and generally working on improving my lab for the next few weeks.

2. Item #1 limits my ability to perform some reactions I wanted to do safely, for instance I wanted to make bromoethane soon. I might still do that one if the weather is good enough, I'll do it outside or something.

3. I will likely make videos or timelapse videos like this one on the build/rebuild process of things for the lab during this time.

4. I also have several videos that have previously been filmed that I haven't gotten around to editing due to lack of time and other factors (laziness) that have delayed production times. I will be editing and releasing these when I can while the lab is undergoing "renovations".

Thank you all for sticking with me and being patient! I also have started an Instagram account if you want to follow my progress between videos.

A final note, I have set up a Patreon account and put the links for my Instagram and Patreon in the about section of the channel. If you choose to donate, I really appreciate any and all support and I am currently working out a reward system for any potential contributors in return for your donations.

DANGER: Fuming Nitric Acid is incredibly dangerous! The reasons will become apparent in this video. Do not try this at home if you're not aware of the dangers and safety protocols necessary.

I made this video after making a small amount of Fuming Nitric Acid. I originally wasn't planning to upload it, but I thought you all might want to see it.You know... because fire.

In this video I attempt to synthesize Sodium Nitrite and Potassium Nitrite from Sodium Nitrate and Potassium Nitrate.

I am attempting to reduce the Nitrate group by one Oxygen using Carbon as the reducing agent. Things don't go completely according to plan, but the synthesis appears to be a viable one.

In this video, I distill Sulfuric Acid from drain cleaner. I mainly wanted to try out my new propane burner.

NOTE:This procedure is extremely dangerous and by no means should be attempted by anyone without experience handling hazardous chemicals.

In this video we chronicle another failure in the lab. This time it's the synthesis of acetaldehyde via a hot copper catalytic dehydrogenation. In an upcoming video, I managed to work out the kinks and get this procedure to work.

This is the tail end of the attempts at distilling nitric acid, and the beginning of my attempts at building alternative heat sources for my lab.

This is the second video in the failure series "Trying to Science". I am chronicling the failures as well as the successes in order to help those who want to partake in this hobby, by helping them avoid my blunders.

This is the first of my "Trying to Science" series, this series will focus on my blunders and miscellaneous failures whilst trying to perform reactions or demonstrate scientific principles.
