Disty Turned Darker after T41

I had some first pass disty given to me to distill again to make gold. It was an orange colour, but lighter than some of my other first passes. distillation did nothing for colour, so I dissolved into Hexane and ran through t41. It came out dark red.
Anyone know what caused the magic dirt to do the opposite of what i wanted it to do.
Im thinking of trying LLE to try take the red out before distilling again.
Any help and advice would be much appreciated.

How is the pH? Did you neutralize the acid?


No i didnt neutralize the acid. I flushed it quickly over the t41 to avoid isomerization…

Try a magsil. Column that’s still the best color remediator

If you can do these with a adequate column do so, otherwise loop into or chance oxidization further than you’ve experienced.

This combo will neutralize has back out everytime :call_me_hand:t3::call_me_hand:t3:

Might know juuuuust what you need went from left:right


Yeah, i think magsil might be the answer to my issues here. I’m keen to add LLE and chromatography into my pre-processing.
