    i am in need of some strong oxidizing substances, and do not wish to buy them.

    flourine would be helpful to work with but rather dangerous, as it tends to oxidize...everything

    does anyone know how i might go about creating something a little more docile, some Potassium Chlorate perhaps?

    react potassium hydroxide with perchloric acid to get potassium perchlorate.
    actually buying the chemical is chaper in the long run.

    Potassium Chlorate

    [KClO3] White powder

    Oxidizer.

    Used as a disinfectant, in weed killers and in dyeing, printing, and chemical analysis.

    NO CHLORATE IN YOUR FIRST ORDER.

    I'm afraid I feel the need to close this thread based on the policy in the sticky at the top of this subforum. I don't want to be distrusting but we need to stay on the safe side with such things. If you want to debate it, you may PM me or an administrator.
