thallium around the house about like you want to be kicked in the
teeth with a heavy pair of boots.
A further bad aspect of this method is its high cost. 100 grams sell
for $150, and the high molecular weight of the compound means that a
lot of it has to be used to get a moderate amount of product. One
pound of thallium(ni) nitrate is required for a 1-molar batch.
This method can be found in Tetrahedron Letters No. 60, pages
5275-80 (1970). To produce a one mole batch, dissolve one mole of
propenylbenzene in some methanol, and put it into a one-gallon glass
jug. In a beaker, dissolve one mole (448 grams) of thallium(HI) nitrate
trihydrate in methanol. Then pour the thallium solution into the jug
with the propenylbenzene, and stir at room temperature for 5 minutes.
The thallium(I) nitrate formed by the reaction comes out of solution. It is
removed by filtration.
The propenylbenzene has at this point been converted to a ketal.
This is hydrolyzed to the phenylacetone by shaking the filtrate with
about 2000 ml of 1 molar sulfuric acid solution in water for about 5
minutes. The phenylacetone is then extracted out with a couple of
portions of tolulene. This extract is then washed with 5% NaOH
solution, then distilled or purified by conversion to the bisulfite

There are three good methods for converting the phenylacetone to
the psychedelic amphetamine. Choice number one is to use reductive
amination with a hydrogenation bomb with Raney nickel, ammonia
and alcohol solvent. See Journal of the American Chemical Society,
Volume 70, pages 12811-12 (1948). Also see Chem. Abstracts from
1954, column 2097. This gives a yield of about 80% if plenty of
Raney nickel is used. The preferred conditions for use with MDA is a
temperature of 80 C, and a hydrogen pressure of 50 atmospheres.
The drawback to this method is the need for a shaker device for
the bomb, and also a heater. The use of platinum as the catalyst in the
bomb works great when making MDMA, but gives lousy results when
making MDA. There may be a way around this, however, for serious
experimenters. It has been found in experiments with phenylacetone
that a mixture of ammonia and ammonium chloride produces good
yields of amphetamine (50%) when used in a bomb with platinum
catalyst. Methylenedioxyphenylacetone is quite likely to behave
similarly, along with other phenylacetones.
To use this variation, the following materials are placed in the 1.5
liter champagne bottle hydrogenation device described in Chapter 11 of
Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture, Third Edition: .5 gram
platinum in 20 ml distilled water. If this platinum is in the form of
PtO2 instead of reduced platinum metal catalyst obtained with
borohydride, the experimenter must now reduce the platinum by
pressurizing the bottle with hydrogen and stirring fo Acid
LSD From Lysergic Acid And
This method also appears to work via some kind of mixed
anhydride. The authors of the US patent 3,141, 887 from which this is
taken didn't investigate the nature of the intermediate formed between
anhydrous lysergic acid and phosgene, but the similarities between
this method and those using SOs or trifluoroacetic anhydride are
obvious. As in those methods, lysergic acid reacts with about two
molecules of phosgene to form an intermediate which is then reacted
with diethylamine to yield LSD. According to the patent, it is not
crucial for success to use the exact stoichiometric amount of phosgene in
reaction with lysergic acid. A ratio of about 2-1 phosgene to
lysergic acid gives best results, but anything fairly close to that works
just fine too.
This is not a method to get excited about. Phosgene is a very
sneaky poison which is best suited to assassination or wholesale
chemical assault, not the home synthesis of drugs. Phosgene is not
irritating when inhaled, and has delayed effects which easily lead to
death. For a complete treatment of the poisonous properties of
phosgene, read Silent Death by me. This substance should not be used
without very effective ventilation. Smoking while in its presence
serves as a warning device, as phosgene makes the smoke taste bad.
One can also prepare a warning paper by soaking said paper in an

alcohol solution containing 10% of an equal mixture of p-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde
and colorless diphenylamine. This paper is then
dried. It will turn yellow to deep orange in the presence of the
maximum-allowable concentration of phosgene. It is a good idea to
wear this paper while working. The only justification of choosing this
method is if a cylinder of phosgene gas is very easily available at work or
To do this reaction, a carefully dried 500 ml flask is charged with a
magnetic stirring bar, 5 grams of anhydrous lysergic acid dried
under heat and high vacuum as described in the previous chapter, and
100 ml dimethlyformamide. Stopper the flask, and cool it to -10° C in a
salt-ice bath. The lysergic acid will not dissolve.
Next to this flask attach a dropping funnel, and drip in 20 ml of
dimethylformamide containing 3.4 grams of phosgene. This solution is
best prepared by taking 200 ml of dimethylformamide and slowly
bubbling into it dimethylformamide phosgene from a cylinder until
the solution gains 34 grams weight. Strong stirring during the
bubbling helps to ensure that most of the phosgene goes into solution
and not the surrounding air. The exact concentration of this phosgene-
DMF complex is unimportant; what is important is that the weight
gain be known, and the amount then portioned out into the batch
contain 3.4 grams phosgene. The addition of the phosgene complex
into the lysergic acid suspension should take at least 20 minutes.
The addition of phosgene should bring e mental discipline. People who cannot endure the
bitterness of peyote often go to various extremes to get it into the system without
having to taste it. One fairly effective method is to drink unsweetened grapefruit
juice while chewing it. The acids in the juice somewhat neutralize some of the
bitter bases. Another method is to grind the dried buttons in a pepper grinder and
pack the pulverised material into OOO capsules which are washed down with
warm water. This is an effective method but it can take 20 capsules or more to
get a 350mg dose of mescaline. Often people will boil the buttons in water for
several hours to make a concentrated tea. A cup of this decoction can be
swallowed in a few hasty gulps. Another preparation that is occasionally used is
a jello-type dessert made with the fresh or dried plant. If spoonfulls are
swallowed whole the gelatine serves as a sort of shield protecting the tastebuds
from contact with the bitter material. It also slows down the the absorption of the
drug in the digestive tract. This can be of value. It is generally recommended that
anyone consuming peyote or mescaline ingest it gradually during a period of an
hour or take two half doses 45 minutes apart. This is done to reduce the shock of
the alkaloid to the system. Nausea or queasiness is sometimes experienced half
an hour or so after taking peyote or mescaline. This usually passes in less than
an hour. A sip of grapefruit juice will sometimes dispel the sick feeling. During the
peyote ceremony Indians encourage vomiting rather than restraint if the urge
presents itself. Throwing up, they believe, is apurging of both physical and
spiritual ills. Most tribes fast for at least a day before taking peyote. This can also
help to minimize gastric distress. One should not have eaten for at least 6 hours
before taking either mescaline or peyote.
A method which avoids both the bitterness and the nausea is the rectal infusion.
8-16 grams of dried peyote is ground into a fine powder and boiled in a pint of
water for 30 minutes. It is then strained and further boiled to reduce it's volume to
one half pint. After cooling, this is taken as an enema using a small bulb syringe
and retained for at least two hours. If there is any fecal matter in the lower bowel,
a small cleansing enema should be taken and thoroughly expelled before having
the peyote infusion. Otherwise much of the drug will be taken up by the feces
and later voided.
FINDING AND PICKING PEYOTE
The peyote cactus may be found in many areas throughout the Chihuahuan
Desert from central Mexico to southern Texas. When a site is found where
peyote grows it usually does so in abundance. Sometimes it grows in open sunlit
places, but more often it is found in clusters under fairly large shrubs, among
mesquite or creosote bushes or in the shade of large succulents.
The best time to harvest any cactus is after a long dry spell. The worst time is
during or after a rainy period.
alse Peyote. These people make long pilgrimages to the
sacred places where peyote grows in search of that sacrement. They believe that
if a person is has not been properly purified the spirits will lead him to the False
Peyote and if he partakes of it, he will suffer madness or at least a bad trip. The
plant is known among some tribes as Chautle or Chaute. These names are also
used for other Ariocarpus species. This cactus contains hordenine, Nmethyltryamine
in fairly small amounts (about 0.02 percent) and traces of Nmethyl-
3,4-dimethoxy-B-phenethylamine, and N-methyl-4-B-phenethylamine.
Aside from these alkaloids it also contains a flavone called retusin (3,3',4',7-
tetramethoxy-5-hydroxyflavone). Although alkaloid content may very some at
different seasons or stages of growth, from the scientific point of view the
amounts present in this plant appear insufficient to produce any
SUNAMI: This plant, ARIOCARPUS FISSURATUS, has been used in folkoric
medicine of Mexico and southwestern USA. It is believed to be more potent than
peyote and is used in the same manner as that cactus or made into an
intoxicating drink. Among some tribes it is known as Chaute (a generic term for
Ariocarpus species), living rock, or dry whiskey. The latter name, however, is
often used for peyote and other psychoactive cacti. There are two varieties of A.
fissuratus: var. lloydii and var. fissuratus. Both have about the same
phytochemical makeup. The plant contains mostly hordenine, less N-methyltyramine
and some N-methyl-3,4-dimethoxy-B-phenethylamine. Two other
species, A. kotschoubeyanus also known as Pata De Venado or Pezuna De
Venado, and A. trigonus also contain these alkaloids.
DOÑANA: This small cactus, CORYPHANTHA MACROMERIS, from northern
Mexico has been found to contain macromerine, a phenethylamine drug reputed
to have about 1/5 the potency of mescaline. It also contains normacromerine, Nformylnor-
macromerin, tyramine, N-methyltramine, hordenine, N-methyl-3,4-
dimethoxy-B-phenethylamine, metanephrine, and synephrine (a macromerine
precursor). Other coryphantha species which contain macromerine with most of
these other alkaloids include: C. pectinada, C. elephantideus, C. runyonii and C.
cornifera var. echinus. Most of these alkaloids with the exception of macromerine
have also been found in other varieties of C. conifera and in C. durangensis, C.
ottonis, C. poselgeriana and C. ramillosa. Considering that there is usually no
more than 0.1 percent macromerine in Doñana and that a gram or more of this
alkaloid may be needed to produce a psychotropic effect, one would have to
consume more than a kilo of the dried cactus or 20 pounds of the fresh plant.
Clearly this is not possible for most humans. If one wishes to experiment with the
hallucinogenic properties of Doñana, is is necessary first to make an extraction of
the mixed alkaloids. Methods for this are given latter in this guide.
