      Good Price? Tell Me, Ok?(Nitromethane)  Bookmark   

  Nitromethane   99.5%
     $11.27 Per Quart
     $10.48 Per Case(Quart)
     $29.67 1gal (Single)
     $26.57 5gal gal.(Per Gal).
     $24.50 55gal(Per Gal)

From 10 minutes of searching this seems to me to appear reasonable..  Should I continue my search(can I do better)?  Looking at 1-5gallons.

Yes those are pretty good prices. SWIM gets his nitromethane from a friend who sells race fuel. The wholesale price he pays is $24 when buying a single gallon. The price you got isn't much over a wholesale price. Don't forget though, shipping is quite costly on the nitro, & I'm pretty sure UPS doesn't ship it.

UPS will ship Hazardous Materials, just not accross borders. Hefty surcharge mind you.

What would be a ligit use for nitroethane and where could one buy it? Some Bee once said racing fuel additive but searches come up with nothing. If anyone has a src I would be grateful if you emed me.

Try talking to the kind folks at a high performance auto store, somewhere that only sells racing equipment.  You can also go to the hobby shop and get some nitro to power your Team Losi truck.

      Nitroethane in the EU  Bookmark   

I haven't seen Nitroethane being sold OTC anywhere in Europe, but most chem suppliers won't bat an eyelash if you order an occasional liter of it together with other "normal" base chemicals (at least not in my experience).

      Nitroethane pricing  Bookmark   

Oh, even Aldrich charge 90 (~$95) for 2.5L and Lancaster only 66 for the same amount. This is the 96% purity kind. I think that is pretty cheap, considering what can be done with 33 moles of the stuff.

Mine was Aldrich brand too but via local supplier so price was bit up,but main problem lies in explaining chem supplier what the fuck are you going to do with that.Solvent is bad excuse,why would anyone want to use so expensive stuff as solvent.Suppliers over here sell gladly to individual but they want to know what it's going to be used.Sent a friend to buy chemicals from that supplier.He ordered sodium cyanide and sodium ethoxide,he got em but since he knew nothing about chemistry,they looked him pretty wierd and hoped he won't go killing somebody with that cyanide.Hope they sell him stuff next time too but i'd better come up for good excuse for needed chemical and i really don't know why would 19 year old need nitroethane.

      Uses of nitroalkanes  Bookmark   

Order it together with 2500ml each of Nitromethane and 2-nitropropane* and in the event that someone would ask about your intended use for it, tell them that you are investigating the properties of nitroalkane mixtures (as fuel, solvent or whatever). Together with the other nitroalkanes, the context of the nitroethane changes drastically compared to if it would be ordered on its own.

* 2-Nitropropane is dirt cheap (15/kg) and is very useful to convert halides to carbonyl compounds, such as benzyl chlorides to benzaldehydes and bromosafrole to MDP2P, see ../rhodium/chemistry /halide.carbonyl.html

nitromethane is mixed with methanol for fuel for remote controlled cars.
Say you own a hobby store that sells the fuel to whichever concentration depending on the remote control car's engine.  
voila.


Moderation is key. BAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA

      If you  Bookmark   

go to a hobby store for your nitro, you most likely will have to talk to the clerk about your RT car. Here is a hint for you most RT cars use the lower % nitro fuels so if you are going to buy the Higher % stuff make sure you tell the guy its for RT airplane engine use. If you tell them its for a car they will go into this long story about how you are going to be burning up your car motor and so on.
The RT boat and airplanes use the high %.

150$ a litre for fuel?No-go,i just might say that i want to test nitroethane but couldn't find any @ hobby store.
