Nitroethane is certainly a general reagent in the synthesis of all amphetamines, such as amphetamine, MDA, TMA, DOM, DOB, 4-FA and many others described by Alexander Shulgin. But recently, this reagent is limited in circulation to many countries, and therefore brewers are experiencing difficulties in safe and easy purchase, as it was a few years ago. This challenge can create a new direction in the drug business - the synthesis of substances limited by law for further sale in laboratories that are engaged in the final synthesis of drugs. The synthesis of nitroethane in a home laboratory is a fairly safe action on the part of the law. You can devote the necessary time for high-quality synthesis and purification, investing minimal funds in the cost. The price on the black market can reach $ 300 for a kilogram of nitroethane, with increased demand, and the deal itself may be conditionally legal, and not punishable (depending on the laws of your country). But it is worth noting that the police want to control gray suppliers, and in any case, it is necessary to observe all measures of secrecy.

HIGGS BOSSONThis is apparently due to the war in Ukraine. Nearly all of the world's supply of nitroethane originated from there which had ceased as the borders became locked and industrial entities stopped operations.

This had actually exposed that even well recognized chemical suppliers outsource certain chemicals which they resell branded under their known name. Nitroethane was one of these chemicals which is why unlike back in the days where you could buy a ton of this shit no questions asked from such a chemical supplier even those sources don't have it anymore.

Personally, I find it pretty impressive that industrial production of this compound is so tightly closed yet clandestine chemists synthesize this compound with little to no resources in comparison.

Ukraine does not produce nitroethane and never did. The inability to get it is the result of many years of international war on drugs including the internationally wide nitroethane control and prohibition legislation. There are 17 companies related to the production of Nitroethane from only 5 countries: US, Germany, Spain, China and India.

Nice! A continuous route i think, was better for large scale. What is about a gasphase nitration of Propane? In sciencemadnes forum there was an chemist there was working on an similar process...

Pussy_KurtOtto snow has some drawings on that in one of his books i believe

hello gays i want a method for big scale can any one tell me how to do big scale
thank every one.
a_kingDo you have experience with a small-scale synthesis?

Separation is not really a problem, all isomers have different boiling points. Fractional distillation should do the job.

No improvement or new methods have been made since The Hive with nitroalkanes. I believe this is the issue that really needs to be addressed and someone have to try these "new" methods in order to fix this problem.

hello, is a mask required for this synthesis?

Patton, I have all the ingredients to do the Bromoethane-NaNO2 route, but would like to scale up to at least 10X the amount in the description - to have about 200ml of Nitroethane in the end. This would however require ridiculous amounts of solvents e.g. 6l of DMSO/DMF, then huge glassware when it is added to water etc. Can the amount of solvents be reduced somehow? Can DMSO/DMF be replaced by something easier to get?

The question goes to anyone, who has ever tried to scale this synthesis up. thank you for any help

treating propane with nitric acid at 350–450 °C. This exothermic reaction produces four industrially significant nitroalkanes: nitromethane, nitroethane, 1-nitropropane, and 2-nitropropane.
Is a lot easier sorry for the jump in 😅

The-HiveThis is well known, there is a patent out there for a more efficient setup using molten NaNO2 at the base I think in a bell shape enclosure over which hot nitric acid and propane is sprayed, the products vaporizing on the outside of the sealed bell before being condensed at the top.This patent also discloses the fact that random explosions are frequent and significant.Youre also going to have to fractionally distill all the mess atleast once.You also can't fully make use of 3/4 of reaction products like they can in industry. Taking all this into consideration this method is wholly not suited for laboratory or micro-production scale.

UWe9o12jkied91dHave you tried it.. I have on a small scale plus all depends how far your willing to go to achieve something
