Youll also have a ph issue using c bleach, the degumming clay or citric acid for degumming

Hi AnonymousD, did you figure out what was the cause of the dark emerald green distillate? Ive never heard of that. I dont think it was carbon or an absorbant because even when I used cbeach in my rbf it never came close to bumping over even when I ramped up the stirbar and the end of the distillation. It sounds like some pH reaction but usually you see pinks, purples, or reds not greens. I dont think its azulene considering it sounds like its not a pigment. Do you remember if the emerald color came over in one fraction or was all the distillate the same color? Have you seen @BreakingDabs method of bump trap azulene removal? It it turns out to be a pigment or azulene after all that is a great way to clean up your distillate and get a loose boiling point of the impurity.

Thanks for sharing!

I dont know why I didn’t find this before but I stumbled upon a method to convert delta 9 to delta 8 from @BR-Instrument (link: https://brinstrument.com/blog/cannabis-distillation/how-to-convert-thc-delta-9-to-thc-delta-8/) Does BR or anyone else have a supplier of acidic alumina silicate they could recommended? I would like to try this out and compare the results to Cbleach.

Id be willing to bet the green comes from not fully burping your azulene fraction and pushing in to your thc fraction

I did not write that and I’m not super familiar with scrubs or adsorbents. I don’t think aluminum silicate is
used, but rather activated alumina. I could be wrong though.

We recommend Carbon Chemistry @Shadownaught . We send some Carbon Chemistry sample products to some of our more experienced users who want to try pre-processing techniques. If anyone is a more advanced processor and owns a B/R feel free to reach out. I think we have one more sample box! I have to say all of the feedback we have gotten has been positive and people go and buy more.

Aluminum silicate is a fancy way to say “clay”.

Our T41 clay is ideal for that isomerization when used excessively in a hot distillation (or extra reflux). T41 is widely available from folks like @Killa12345 and vendors across the country. You can visit www.carbon-chemistry.com for SDSs and some SOPs.
