      koh performic q?  Bookmark   

I ordered 5kgs of supposed koh 85% flakes, i notice when the pellete are set in a semi sealed jar they quickly convert to a liquid. if i weighed out the desired amount of dried pellets and let them liquify, could i just add them to the boiling sass at 2g per 100g sass and just reflux off the excess h20  15% until that it all evaporated and turned to the higher boiling iso?
any help appreciated

Yes, either you don't attach the reflux condenser until all the water has evaporated, or you use Osmium's vacuum reflux method, which sucks out the water vapor through the vacuum connection.

Do NOT let them intentionally liquify!

The manufacturer worked overtime using lots of energy to produce a solid product. Don't make them cry like little babies by letting the pellets soak up water from the air!

maybe then weigh the large pellets out and put them into a large blender to turn to flakes then add directly to iso?
just a thought
