This is a quick video of the synthesis of Cs3[Tl2Cl9] from thallium(I) chloride. The method comes from the Handbook of Preparative Inorganic Chemistry page 874. You can download the textbook for free from:
https://b-ok.cc/book/533123/3b75e9

I probably should have mentioned once the complex forms it can be recrystallized unchanged from water or the mother liquor without decomposition according to the textbook. So it should be fairly stable. This is not the case for most thallic complexes which tend to break down if you attempt to recrystallize them. This was the case for the rubidium hexabromothallate that I made in a previous video.

In this video I demonstrate a synthesis of thallium carbonate from the metal that I worked out over the course of a few weeks. Most of the information came from the Handbook of Preparative Inorganic Chemistry. The thallium for this experiment (along with all of my other non-radioactive elements) was purchased from the following seller on eBay (I personally vouch for him; his stuff is always top notch and the shipping is always quick):

To the SJW cancel culture ass hat who thought that spamming my channel was a good idea because I refuse to drive an electric car and don't really care about my "carbon footprint" this one's for you! Have a few hundred kilos of CO2! I guess he thought that if you all knew I dared to say I really don't really give a rats ass that it would shame me into submission. Bitch I apologize for NOTHING! For the record I think we should go full nuclear (but not those retarded pressurized light water reactors that melt down if the power goes away!!) supplemented by renewables but no one wants to do that. They just want to virtue signal and try to destroy capitalism. They certainly don't go after China which burns more coal than the rest of the world combined!! Gotta have those iPhones! So to hell with it. When people get serious about wanting to actually solve the problem I'll be right here. Until then I don't give a shit because apparently no one else does either.

I love that sound! :-) I made up a batch of UO3 from 5 grams of DU and 1 gram of NU and then converted a good portion of it to UO2SO4.3H2O. Right after the solid uranyl sulfate trihydrate had finished crystallizing I took it off the heat and measured the activity coming off of it. It was a bit higher than I expected it to be but not by a whole lot.

In this video I demonstrate the synthesis of barium chlorate from potassium chlorate. Ammonium chlorate is produced as an intermediate but is not isolated from solution. This synthesis comes from the Handbook of Preparative Inorganic Chemistry pages 314-315. You can also find the step by step procedure on my website at:

In this video I demonstrate the preparation of a much better quality red that can be carried out in about half an hour instead of two days. Potassium uranate, uranyl nitrate, potassium hydroxide, and hydrogen sulfide gas were needed to carry out the synthesis. The prep of all of the compounds needed for this method has been demonstrated in previous videos on this channel. The potassium uranate was made by fusion of uranium trioxide with potassium chloride and potassium nitrate (the "Improved Prep of Potassium Uranate").

This is an extremely quickie video but I had to share this! I decided to dry the uranium red overnight and this morning I bottled it. I then decided to pour a little bit out onto a watch glass and look at it under the scope. I just wanted to get some pics of the crystal morphology but to my complete astonishment I saw the uranium red particles bouncing around all over the place and even breaking themselves into smaller pieces!! My best guess is that this is being caused by electrostatic forces caused by the radiation.

In this video I prepare an old timey mixture known as "uranium red". Most of the information for this prep came from sources written in the 1800s. I could not find a single mention of this stuff in any modern chem textbooks (not saying it's not there just that I couldn't find any mention of it). As to the mixtures actual composition this is also a bit of a mystery. But the prep worked and I did end up with the material described.

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... :-)

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.

Just a quick little video to cheer you up. A real chem video is in the works. It is taking a bit longer since I am having to work a lot right now as I try to fill in the financial hole left by being unemployed for several months. It will be up by tomorrow at the latest. Hopefully this will hold you over until then. :-)

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. I will personally vouch for this person and their trustworthiness.

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! :-)

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).

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.
