      Heroin base to HCl without ether?  Bookmark   

Is it possible to just dilute the heroin base in enough ethanol, add HCl and then let the ethanol evaporate to be left with heroin-hcl? I can't see what the ether is needed for other than letting the heroin-hcl precipitate.

Another question: Heroin base will decompose to morphine on prolonged contact with air, but how long could it be stored when dissolved in ethanol?
