• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Is it possible to separate the N from the liquid it's mixed with (i.e. the veterinary bottles)? I am wondering if there's an easy way like through evaporation or something like that. Any chemists here have any ideas?

It would require knowing the temperature at which pentobarbital starts degrading. I've tried to find this info online but haven't been able to.

Probably, a big part of the liquid will be just normal water. So maybe boling it would give you a powder, or something like that, but I'm not sure.

You can create the powder out of the liquid. Then you could dissolve the powdered N into a smaller volume of water. I forgot how but you can do it and supposedly its not too hard.

EDIT: i remember now, you have to vaccum off the solvents.

I wouldn't mess with converting liquid veterinary N into free acid crystals. It's more than N in that liquid, which will alter the reaction when trying to convert.
For long term storage, the powdered N (pentobarbital sodium salt) can be converted into free acid (pentobarbital), the latter not being soluble in water thus not affected by moisture/temp. Please note that ~20% of the amount will be lost in reconversion back to the sodium salt.
