Basically what the title reports. At which pressure is benzene transported through pipeline? I've searched for information, but I found nothing. It could also be good information knowing at which pressure are aromatics (in general) transported through pipeline (maybe it is easier to find information about aromatics in general, although I've neither found a thing...)
@OP, I think you may have misunderstood the information that was generated.
Organic Chemistry Forum / How to generate common names for new organic compounds
« Last post by Babcock_Hall on December 02, 2022, 11:26:27 AM »
I would like to name some new compounds with common names.  I want to be as systematic and consistent as possible.  Are there guidelines or instructions on how to do so somewhere?  I realize that one could use IUPAC names, but I was trying not to, for the time being.

The gel nail polish formulas you posted are very industry standard. I personally handle all these sorts of materials every day in their pure form (albeit wearing gloves and a lab coat).

Are they perfectly studied and definitely have no ill effects? No.

Are they generally considered pretty safe by most people who use and regulate them? Yes.

Thank you so much for your reply and taking the time to download the pdf and look through it.

I figured they weren’t putting anything outrageous inside them. But for some reason a lot of people have started a lot of fear mongering with the gel nail product brands that are based in China, while doting and raving about products from companies that aren’t inside China but do all the manufacturing there …

So I just wanted to double check and very much appreciate it !

Google is your friend.

These reactions are done in pre-A-level classrooms so I expect an amateur to achieve them.

Procedure as worded is ambiguous - acetate buffer means a buffer made by mixing acetic acid with some acetate (typically sodium), but what are concentrations of these and what is their ratio is in no way obvious. Acetate buffer typically means something between pH 4 and 5.5, exact value can be important, or it can be not, depends on the reaction details.

Buffer has to be selected carefully, so that it doesn't interfere with the detection reaction. Say, if you detect chlorides with Ag+, any ion reacting with Ag+ will give you a false positive. Acetate buffer is a common selection in such cases.

I would suggest to use a 0,1 M buffer. 0,05 M CH3COONa  and 0,05 M CH3COOH

The procedure doesn't say anything about concentration. It just says "moisten a strip of potassium iodide starch paper with the sodium acetate buffer." A little more detail about the procedure, it is a two part check for cyanide in waste water. The first check is for chlorine and the second is for sulfide. Both checks require the sodium acetate buffer.
Please read the forum rules. You have to show your attempts at answering the question/solving the problem to receive help, it is a forum policy.

A sodium acetate buffer contains the equal moles of sodium acetate and acetic acid. The concentration  and the to achieve pH you have to know.  Calculation with Hendersson Hasselbalch equation.
