Drug synthesis sub-forum
« on: April 01, 2014, 10:09:43 AM »
After consulting with my peers I decided to open a new subforum in Organic Chemistry, devoted to drug synthesis.

It is not a secret that finding correct recipes on the net is difficult - procedures listed are typically either incomplete, or outright wrong. That makes cheap synthesis of a safe, pure products impossible. We have enough knowledge between our organic team members to help those interested.

Changes to the forum structure will be made live later this week, once all legal work is done. We are moving both DNS and servers to Nauru, as surprisingly their law seems to be lax enough to make discussion on a new subforum safe and possible.

Am I reading correctly that discussion related to synthesis of illegal (in most jurisdictions) drugs will now be permitted here?

In the same spirit I'm in the process of incorporating a start-up that will ship reliable intermediates needed for drug synthesis to your doorstep without any of the usual bureaucratic hassles, paperwork etc.

Shipping is free, and our Android app will be online next week.

Stay tuned.

Yes, with emphasis on the high quality of the final product (purity!) and safety (so no flammable solvents, no explosive intermediates, toxic reactants and so on).

You people are nuts. Next thing you will be giving instructions to Uranium enrichment.

Is there a way to make certified organic Ecstacy? Organic used in the Whole Foods sense of the term.

I agree. I hate it when my X has pesiticides in it.

You should go further and develop chemical-free drugs for those who do not want to expose themselves to harmful chemicals.  It will be like taking homeopathic treatments to the next level!

As an expert in this field of chemistry may I offer my services as a moderator?

Sure thing, actually I hoped for your help and expertise.

You people are nuts. Next thing you will be giving instructions to Uranium enrichment.

I'm afraid I don't have many insights on that front, but I was getting tired of avoiding some of the more interesting pyrotechnics questions.  So, I hope we can cut loose on that front as well.  Everyone should have as much summertime fun as they can handle, and there's no fireworks like home made.

Why limit your shells to having a flash powder burst, I personally prefer 30g of RDX.

Just in case someone thought this thread was an April Fool's joke: you were right.

You did have me going for a while Borek:, I was getting ready to post some sort of objection.  And then I realized, you got me again.

You had me, I wrote a (very) lengthy post giving reasons why it was a bad idea and that regrettably I could no longer affiliate myself with the forum if this happened.

Then I realised, indeed I felt quite the fool  :)
