does anyone know the purity (naclo3) of "Morgan's" weedkiller.
if there's a contaminent, what might it be and can it be removed by fractional crystallisation?
btw it's a better oxidiser than kclo3 because the na atom is much smaller than the k atom.
if you can keep it dry, you get more bangforyourbuck.
'pity about its hygroscopicity.

agricultural fertilizer and not absolutely pure but close enough. Not anything harmful and not in any quanity to even adjust a formula over. I would eat the stuff and not worry about. Not that I would suggest it. As a hobbyist it last a good long time for a guy like me.
Not to long ago I ran across about 25-30
pounds I had forgotten I even had.
I just couldn't resist:P

i agree that naclo3 is more sensitive than kclo3, but it's a small increase and the only accident i've had was with kclo3+graphite powder. i should'nt smoke while mortaring+pestling.
i suppose i should electrolyse the weedkiller to oxidise the chloride to chlorate. i've only graphite electrodes so the perchlorate is out. anyone tried pbo2 electrodes for per/synth? any info would help. thanks again.

Doing pyro without KNO3 is like trying to bake a loaf of bread without flour. You can do a gazillion things with the stuff. KNO3 that is.
My wife puts it in my iced tea. She says its a good dietary supplement for all married men.

Now let's see...... what was I going to say. Oh yea, What in the devil is a MAYFLOWER? No, I don't know where I came from. My dad gets real mad when I ask. Mom just goes in the bedroom and cries. I quit asking.
Is there a TV show or other that we have in common? Doctor Who maybe. Red Dwarf? A little help here. No Harry Potter references please! JRR Tolken maybe.
Gandalf the wizard comes to mind when I try to think what the Head Honcho looks like. I seem to remember that wizard whipped up some pretty good fireworks.
