Re-Crystallization of 5-MeO-DMT HCl
« on: June 21, 2017, 05:01:34 PM »
Just wondering if any chemistry-type people here might have some ideas on how to best do a recrystallization of 5-MeO-DMT HCl in order to remove impurities that might be present.

I have searched the web for this but haven't been able to find anything specifically about this topic.

Thanks in advance!

A chemist friend has suggested the following possible solvent systems:

Pure warm anhydrous:
  • hexane
  • ethyl acetate
  • EtOH and ethyl acetate
  • H2O and acetone

Will have to try this out and report back.
