All you need to do,if these caps are similar to the ER caps local to me.You need a minimum of chemicals & equipment I was told.Get some;
1/.Sodium Hydroxide Solution (Quite Basic-Strong),
2/.Some HCL Acid (dilute-from 28-33%),
2/.1 Jar or Beaker,
3/. A pH meter or pH papers (to measure increments of pH 1,is enough).
4/.A selection of spoons (at least 1 Tablespoon or Ladle for mixing & a teaspoon).
Put the beads from the Caps (in increments of 100mgs a time is best) into the tablespoon & crush to a fine powder.This works best with at least 400mg apparently.Add water & mix up.Filter through a cigarette filter or cotton.(Cigarette filters you can buy for roll your owns are ideal).Filter through into a syringe then into a jar through a medium wheel filter (should be obtainable from a N.E. Program near you).You can add more water to get the last M out,apparently,but try for the least aggregate amount of water possible.I was told this helps in crystallisation.When you have filtered all you want to do,say 500mg,you should have about 100-130mls of solution at most.Apparently this is best.Add Sodium Hydroxide Solution until your Solution reachs 13.Above a little is OK I'm told.When you get here start adding drops of HCL acid solution.You can do this with papers,no great accuracy is required,but a meter is even better.If the Caps are similar you will notice crystals begin to form at about pH9.3-2 at the latest.These continue to form and grow until 8.5 (approx) is reached.If they don't,drop to 8.7-8.5 and use a glass rod to precipitate the crystals by rubbing the rod up & down the jar side in the solution.A touch more Sodium Hydroxide may need to be added to keep the pH above 8.5.(a wooden stick or handle of a wooden spoon will accomplish the same thing).You only need to filter the crystals and dry to obtain base Morphine
crystals of 100% purity.You don't need a bulkner & flask set up for this (though maybe ideal).The same can be accomplished by putting holes through the top of a small plastic bottle,covering the end of the same bottle with a coffee
filter cut to fit,then put the top on.The bottom of the plastic jar,having been cut off to allow this,shows an empty cylinder with a lid covered with coffee filter then.Just add your solution,in increments if necessary,and blow it through.Unscrew the top and dry over element on med with a kitchen sieve.If you think there might be M still in solution,freeze it,at pH 8.5.If there is it will be there as crystal when melted.
A/. This will work on most beaded M caps,also a lot of Elixirs & rapid acting M tabs can be precipitated out in this way.
B/.This is perfect if you care to Acetylate the crystals.
C/It removes all that is put there to make the product Slow Release.
D/.End product is 100% pure.
E/.Cowboys who do this Guarantee results.
I hope this is easy to follow.It requires a little chemistry to understand but absolutely none to accomplish.Above all,have fun.And always be very safe.
