There have been fairly a couple of posts through the years about discolouration on 1P, and extra not too long ago, 1cP-LSD blotters, with numerous claims and hypothesis about such blotters having degraded and even being poisonous.
Hopefully these issues may be put to relaxation with this submit. I’m fortunate to have a buddy who’s a lab technician at a reliable lab, and he agreed to confirm whether or not the yellow shade on a current batch of 1cP reveals up in GCMS evaluation. It’s fascinating to notice that the discolouration is particularly seen on one facet, which in keeping with the manufacturing lab might be a results of the sheets being dried with the textual content facet up.
Remember the fact that that is evaluation is considerably uncommon, as substances are usually GCMS examined of their crystal kind and never when already on blotter, however right here is the way it was achieved:
Ten notably yellow blotters from a current batch had been reduce into tiny items, put in a flask, lined with methanol and suspended in an ultrasonic bathtub for extraction. This was repeated a number of occasions with extra methanol, mixed after which diminished on a rotavap to pay attention the filtrate earlier than injecting into the GCMS.
Beneath are photographs with the outcomes of this evaluation. As you’ll be able to see, the main product is 1cP-LSD (391.2 g/mol). There are not any identifiable degradation merchandise or different ergoline molecules. Solely the baseline is somewhat messy as a result of poor sign to noise ratio and another contaminants on the column (undecane and DCK). Regardless of the yellow is, it’s current in tiny portions.
