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
12 Studies On The Production OfTMA-2
Production of TMA-2, MDA, etc. from the
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

into the benzene during separation pour everything back into the separator, let it
stand and repeat the separation more carefully. It is better to leave some
benzene layer in the water and emulsion than to get emulsion and water into the
benzene. Nothing will be wasted. All of the benzene which contains the
mescaline will eventually be salvaged. Sometimes the layers will fail to separate
properly. If this is the case immerse the funnel or jug in a deep pot of hot water
for two hours. This will break up the emulsion and bring about the separation.
Prepare a solution of 2 parts sulfuric acid and one part water. (never add water to
the acid or it will splatter; add the acid a little at a time to the water by pouring it
down the inside of the graduate or measuring cup containing the water.) Add 25
drops of the acid solution one drop at a time to the benzene extracts. Stopper the
jug and shake well for one minute. Then let stand for five minutes. White streaks
of mescaline sulfates should begin to appear in the benzene. If these do not
appear, shake the jug more vigorously for two to three minutes and let it settle for
five more minutes. I have found that when extracting mescaline from San Pedro
it is sometimes necessary to shake the mixture more thoroughly and for a longer
time to get the mescaline streaks to form. This is probably because of the lower
mescaline content in the plant. This would also apply to any peyote that does not
have a high mescaline content. After the streaks appear add 25 more drops of
the acid solution in the same manner, shake as before and let settle for ten
minutes. More streaks will appear. Add 15 drops of acid, shake and wait 15
minutes for streaks to form. Add 10 drops, shake and wait about 30 minutes.
Test the solution with wide range pH paper. It should show that the solution is
between pH 7.5 and 8. Allow the mescaline sulfate crystals to completely
precipitate. Siphon off as much of the benzene as possible without disturbing the
crystals on the bottom of the jug.
The next steps are to salvage any mescaline still in the water and emulsion layer.
Combine the benzene siphonings with the water/emulsion layer, shake these well
together for 5 minutes and let settle for two hours as before. Carefully remove the
benzene layer, treat it again with acid, precipitate the crystals and siphon off the
benzene as in the previous steps. Recombine the siphoned benzene with the
watery layer and repeat this again and again until no more crystals precipitate.
Siphon off as much benzene as possible without drawing crystals through the
The next step involves removing the remaining benzene from the crystals. There
are two methods to choose from. The first is the quickest, but requires ether,
which is dangerous and often difficult to procure. Shake up the crystals with the
remaining benzene and pour it into a funnel with filter paper. After the benzene
