Try to get the Chrom(III)-Kaliumsulfat (Chrome-alaun). You can say you want to grow nice big cristalls what indeed can be done with this alaune. This salt has not even an X in Uemuras chem catalogue!

Sort of a nickname for the element chromium. The elemental form will be hard to find but, as uemura says, it is available in many innocent compounds.

Someone posted something about some kind of chromium oxide before and wondered if it was chromium trioxide (CrO3) or something else.  They said something about it being used in making ceramics.  I think people figured out that it was chromic oxide (Cr2O3) because it was green and CrO3 is orange-red.  Chromic oxide is also known as chrome green.  You can make CrO3 from Cr2O3 by electrolysis which can then be used as an oxidizing agent without making K2Cr2O7 out of it.

yous guys is crazy!!

I would think using CrO3 would be way up there in the BAD IDEA list. As far as I am aware, all Chrome(VI) compounds are carcinogenic, mutagenic, cellulotoxic sons o bitches.

Wouldn't it be smarter to just buy the dichromate??

But then, there's always cyanide.......

See ya around (maybe...)

  Much smarter but no one ever listens to me when I tell them how useful the chem store is.  They always bitch and moan about getting arrested and blah blah blah so fuck it.
