in you synovex experiment, you use sodium hydroxide (lye if i remember its everyday name) to de-ester the propinate. where do you find it, or can you use other forms of hydroxide like urea hydroxide (Lime-Away) or calcium hydroxide (reef calcuim for salt water reef aquariums)? i am having some problems here with finding what i need and would greatly apprietate you input.......thanks

I [think] it is Caustic Soda, which I [think] is a household cleaning agent. Pretty nasty stuff to your skin from what I remember.

If memory serves, you can obtain it at most photo supply shops.

Ah, memories of dextromethorphan extraction...

Sodium hydroxide=Lye=Caustic Soda

They are all the same thing. When conducting the Synovex conversion, do not breathe the fumes created when the Sodium hyroxide is added. Also, try not to get any on you. When combined with water, it heats up very quickly.

I see you found what you are looking for, I know there is red devil lye at most supermarkets, which is pure NaOH as well.
