freebase lidocaine to lidocaine HCL
Anyway, here's the story. I'm getting an implant done in my finger tip.
I've had a few piercings, and a couple tattoos, which didn't bug me
much, but I'm worried the nerve density of my finger tip will be more
pain than I'll want to handle without numbing up a bit.
I've extracted lidocaine from a topical burn spray through an acid-base
extraction, and far as I can tell unless there's unlisted ingredients
I've got pure lidocaine dissolved in clean naptha, which is evaporating
off as I type.
I've got a scale, and once I have my crystals of pure freebase
lidocaine, I want to convert it back to lidocaine HCL using some lab
grade HCL i had a friend bring me a small sample of from one of his
chemistry classes, It's supposed to be exactly 40%. I need to know how
much HCL to add to how many MG or grams or whatever I get (Not quite
sure how much is in the naphtha now, I'll weigh it when it's evapped.)
to get lidocaine hcl without any extra leftover hcl... I'd rather not
burn my finger tip before I get it sliced into, no matter how numb it
is. Any guidance from soneone who might be able to calculate for me, or
link me to a way to calculate it myself so I can learn and not just ask
questions anytime I dont know something.
If I add too much HCL, if I let it sit open for a week or so will the
hcl evaporate leaving lidocaine hcl and water? or should I try using
citric acid instead? I've basically modified the procedure from a DXM extraction(I used to be a druggy, now I put my curiosity towards stretching myself and improving my body as much as I can), so any guidance would be nice.
Thanks in advance!
