Lab Notes July 24th - Optimizing sodium, making HBr, and The Clevenger
My lab notes for this month so far.
Basically, i've been optimizing sodium production. So far i can get it up to 60-70% yield just with cleaner techniques.
I've been making more hydrobromic acid and have and improved method of making it using sulfuric acid, and purifying it using sulfur or sodium metabisulfite.
i've also have a new piece of lab equipment called the clevenger apparatus.
