    hey guys,
    i am trying to find a easy method to extract nicotine from tobacco at home.
    guys, before we start, i would like to tell you that this is not my first time and i have already did it with many other methods including the apple osmosis one which i found the cleanest and easiest.
    so i know how dangerous is it, and if i want to commit suicide, i will just put couple of drops of disolved nicotine in alcohol on my skin.
    so okay, my aim:- find the most easiest and cleanest method of extraction of nicotine from tobacco at home.
    which also means that i am not going to use any fancy chemicals or apparatus for this process.

    and this is active discussion for development. rnd. so any feedback will be appreciated.

    okay so this process i have in mind, and i am going to start it tomorrow after few feedbacks from you guys.

    1) buy 100 g of tobacco, moderately expensive. not the cheap one which has all the crap nor the expensive one with the addictives in it. (suggestions on type of tobacco are welcomed. please mention name and cost)
    2) take around 1 litre of tap water. now we all know if the water is acidic, extraction is better. now, i have done with hcl, so lets try something different. more homely. wat you guys think about lemon juice. (citric acid) couple of lemons in 1 litre water? or what you say about vodka?
    3) stir the mixture. boil it for 5 mins. then keep it like that for 24 hours. then again boil it for 10 mins.(stir ever hour). then collect the water. then put the soaked tobacco on a piece of cloth and squeeze the remaining water out of tobacco. (now here guys, i think if i grind the tobacco first then it will be better for extraction, but more impurities will be there in water other then nicotine. what you all say?
    4) then throw all the crap away and simmer the water till all the liquid is evaporated.
    5) now the tricky part. purification. i have tried the coffee filter method with the help of vaccumm. but which method you guys think i should use here? i need something easy and efficient.

    so guys, this is all i got in my brain so far. what you people say? all suggestions are welcomed.
    (PS:- i am typing all this for second time. first time i typed everything properly but due to some crappy server error i had to retype it again and i am in kinda hurry. so i typed it this way. hope you understand.)
    thanks

    Why are you doing this and what is the scientific rationale for each step in your protocol? On what are you basing the existing protocol?

    im assuming you wish to extract nicotine for reasons that dot involve dangerous motives. iv been looking into the possibilities for ecigarettes ever since it was announced that there might be regulations into the pipe line. extraction is easy enough its cleaning the rest of the crap up to be left with a nicotine base that would be the problem. since nicotine dissolved in water and can also be vaporised (ecigarettes are a prime example) would a distillation process be an effective method for removing all the other less desirable chemicals from the tobacco infused solution. i have seen a (french) youtube video that did exactly that with tobacco placed into a sodium hydroxide solution and hen the nicotine distilled from that. im not entirely sure what the purpose of the sodium hydroxide played in the distillation process though.

    I never tell anyone with the mark of the beast in their screen name how to perform scientific experiments beyond vinegar and baking soda.

    Get more things in your brain then come back and ask better questions than this.

    I read that process. It's very easy and quick. One pack of cigarettes can yield about a full gram of nicotine and they even tell you the best way to get your target human to ingest it for a very hard to detect poison. Especially when the human is a heavy smoker.

    But I'll assume that's not your intent, but it might be nice if you could elaborate a bit more on your (sciencefreak666) motives for this topic.

    So you've read The Anarchist Cookbook? What did you think of it? I haven't really met to many other people that have read it. But I will say it's not your every day read.

    I read many anachist literatures in an attempt to understand them. The anarchist cookbook is rather old, the very meaning and behaviour of anachist changed dramatically over the years. I actually tested out some of the experiments in the book, some worked, some didn't. However i'm very curious about the blotto box; did not dare to test it.
    For those that want a little more detail about what a blotto box is.
