After searching plenty, I feel like I haven’t gotten a definitive answer. I don’t want the “it’s difficult,” “good luck” - type answers, I’m really just asking - does anyone know of any person, ever, even if it’s just a single person alive, that has ever successfully remediated d9 from d8 distillate, and demonstrated undeniable proof? I just want to know if it’s possible, in spite of how difficult it may be.
If someone has successfully done it, I would be curious to know what yields looked like (eg, did you produce only 10g of pure d8 from a kilo of 10% d9 starting distillate? Was this person able to achieve higher yields?), as well as how long the process may have taken.
I feel like I remember seeing one or two people who had said either that they’ve done it, or that they know someone who did it - but can’t remember who I’d seen say it.
I know there are better, easier, quicker, more efficient techniques. I just so happen to have a spinning band, coupled with an enormous cash crunch at the moment. Have a spinning band, don’t have the cash for chromatography.
