Extraction of caffeine from soda
« on: October 28, 2020, 03:50:25 PM »
Hello all!

Through Google, I’ve found this simple lab experiment for isolating the caffeine in a can of Mountain Dew:

My question is, if done correctly, would the resultant (now caffeine-free) Mountain Dew be safe to consume?

If not, is there a comparable procedure that would result in a safe-to-drink product?

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to anymore in this day and age
