Carbon Party! Life Extension / Body Armour thread mashup!
So, i have been working on a at home protocol for making boron carbide fabric, as previously mentioned on the implantable armour thread. there's a paper in the library. this actually stemmed from some work related projects that i was doing, attempting to bond molecular structures into carbon fiber matrices based onthis whole bullet proof tshirt research. some fires (literally), were started and we dropped the project.
on the lifeext thread, a video was posted about making ones own graphene at home, with basically an oven and some errant plumbing. before trying some tshirts, i was first working on duplicating the protocol and quantifying it. i have a slide which should be covered with a mixture of carbon structures. i have a slot reserved for the NMR later this week where i can test how much of it is C60. if this can be easily made from sugar and purified, buying olive oil tinctures would seem unnecessary.
further work: can we do this and make the boron carbide fabric? this method requires a lot water and has a large "this stuff here is crap but here's the good stuff" ratio. also, how much C60 is in this mixture? please refer to the mentioned video and paper. any input is welcome.
