Home-made Aspirin

Enjoyed this photo sent to us by Twitter friend @chrispattillo1

It shows a sample of aspirin he made after being inspired by our recent video.

Always glad to see people replicate our demonstrations - providing they know what they are doing and take all necessary safety precautions, of course!

We definitely wouldn't want to see anyone repeat any of our explosions without plenty of chemistry knowledge and safety equipment.

Chris made his aspirin in a research lab, by all accounts.

Here's the original video we made in which Dr John Moses made a sample of aspirin.

  2. From the way i learned it, urea was the first molecule ever made... not aspirin

  3. As a chemistry teacher, I teach my students that the first synthetic organic molecule was urea.

  4. The man had to jump from his 2nd floor window to safety. He sustained serious injuries and was transported to the hospital.Home Safety Inspection Services

  5. There are plenty of talk about Series LLCs. More and more people are wondering if they're a good idea. The short answer is that they aren't -- they haven't been tested, giving them limited applications if they have any at all.
