not sure of the specifics of it though.  It said ethylamine can be produced by reacting ethyl iodide with ammonium iodide.  Sounds simple enough, except that it's a lot easier to get ammonium chloride.<br><br>I thought about doing a ethylamine birch once, but temporarily gave up on the idea due to not having an open space to do it in outside, and ethylamine is very flammable and I didn't want to take the risk of dropping an alkali metal into it if there was any water present.  Where I am, it's extremely humid all the time, and this could pose a serious problem.<br><hr>Sed quis

To produce 1mole = 155g Et-I you will need 1mole = 126g iodine or a similar iodide source (generously assuming 100% yields). Those 155g Et-I will convert into 45g EtNH2(again assuming 100% yield).<br><br>Same applies to bromine, which is not as costly as iodine but still not cheap either. The bromine compounds will even be more volatile and a bit less reactive.<br><br>Even if you figure out a way to recycle all the chems this will be a very costly and tedios synth. It might be worth it for EtNH2 as a MDE precursor, but as a Birch reaction solvent??? That will be the most expensive meth you ever produced! And don't forget to add your time into the calculation, even if you assume at's all a hobby and you don't earn much as a janitor anyway.<br>Not everything that is theoretically doable and looks good on paper also makes sense in real life!<br><br> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td align="left" valign="bottom"><img src="../forum/images/left_bottom.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> <td valign="middle" align="center" colspan="7"> </td> <td align="right" valign="bottom"><img src="../forum/images/right_bottom.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> </tr> <tr class="page_bg"> <td colspan="9"> </td> </tr> <td align="left" valign="top" class="text_bg"> <img src="../forum/images/left_top.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> <td colspan="7"><a name="Post249600"></a></a> </td> <td align="right" valign="top"><img src="../forum/images/right_top.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td rowspan="2"> </td> <td rowspan="2"> </td> <td valign="top" align="center" rowspan="2"> goiterjoe<br> <i>(<span title="The user's title at the time of posting">Hive Addict</span>)</i><br> <span title="Posting date">12-21-01 19:38</span><br> <span title="Link to this post by using the markup [249600]">No 249600</span><br> </td> <td rowspan="2">  </td> <td rowspan="2" width="1" class="vert_ruler"> <img src="../forum/images/hr.gif" border="0" width="1" height="1"> </td> <td rowspan="2">  </td> <td class="text_bg" align="left" valign="top"> <b title="The subject of this post">Re: Easy Ethylamine ?</b> </td> <td class="text_bg" align="right" valign="top">  <a href="https://www.the-hive.ws/forum/favorites.pl?Cat=&option=add&number=249600&Number=249600&page=83&view=&sort=5&part=&vc=&new=&backto=showflat" title="Add this post to your bookmark list in your Private Area">Bookmark</a>  </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td colspan="2" valign="top" align="left"> <br> that was the whole point of questioning if the reaction would take place if ethyl chloride was substituted instead.<br><br><br><hr>Sed quis custodiet ipsos custodes? </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td align="left" valign="bottom"><img src="../forum/images/left_bottom.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> <td valign="middle" align="center" colspan="7"> </td> <td align="right" valign="bottom"><img src="../forum/images/right_bottom.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> </tr> <tr class="page_bg"> <td colspan="9"> </td> </tr> <td align="left" valign="top" class="text_bg"> <img src="../forum/images/left_top.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> <td colspan="7"><a name="Post249629"></a><a name="last"></a></a> </td> <td align="right" valign="top"><img src="../forum/images/right_top.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td rowspan="2"> </td> <td rowspan="2"> </td> <td valign="top" align="center" rowspan="2"> Aurelius<br> <i>(<span title="The user's title at the time of posting">Hive Bee</span>)</i><br> <span title="Posting date">12-21-01 23:11</span><br> <span title="Link to this post by using the markup [249629]">No 249629</span><br> </td> <td rowspan="2">  </td> <td rowspan="2" width="1" class="vert_ruler"> <img src="../forum/images/hr.gif" border="0" width="1" height="1"> </td> <td rowspan="2">  </td> <td class="text_bg" align="left" valign="top"> <b title="The subject of this post">Re: Easy Ethylamine ?</b> </td> <td class="text_bg" align="right" valign="top">  <a href="https://www.the-hive.ws/forum/favorites.pl?Cat=&option=add&number=249629&Number=249629&page=83&view=&sort=5&part=&vc=&new=&backto=showflat" title="Add this post to your bookmark list in your Private Area">Bookmark</a>  </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td colspan="2" valign="top" align="left"> <br> although ethyl chloride would normally be the alkyl of choice for our purposes (Cl sources are easier than I or Br because of price or availability) aurelius does not think this to be the case here.  ethyl chloride evaporates to quickly to be of practical use (without allowing for gas phase reactions)  </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr class="text_bg"> <td align="left" valign="bottom"><img src="../forum/images/left_bottom.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> <td valign="middle" align="center" colspan="7"> </td> <td align="right" valign="bottom"><img src="../forum/images/right_bottom.gif" border="0" height="12" width="9"></td> </tr> <tr class="page_bg"> <td colspan="9"> </td> </tr> </body> </html>
