Home Made Iodine Crystals

As of July 2, 2007, Iodine has been moved from a list 2 to list 1 chemical and the DEA regulates any compounds containing more than 2.2 percent Iodine.

The actual ruling from the DEA can be read here: FR Doc E7-14317 [Federal Register: July 24, 2007 (Volume 72, Number 141)] [Rules and Regulations] [Page 40238-40239] From the Federal Register Online via GPO Access [] [DOCID:fr24jy07-10]

Screw the Feds.

Iodine crystals will sublimate, and if secured inside any container, will stain contents brown, AND oxidize metals. Not to mention the hassles on obtaining ingredients and doing the recipe shown in this [well-intentioned but useless] video

Better off with pool-shock

I think you missed the point. Iodine is needed for *things* other than an antiseptic.

Ya just gotta walk back the cat.

iodine and amonia can be used to create a great sensitive explosive especially when dried....

a natural source of potassium iodine is brown kelp

Yup, I took HS chemistry and we made lovely liquid that we painted onto fliptop desks and left it to dry as a "hello' to classmates

If you want to do "Other Things" there are easier and safer ways. I didn't miss anything.
