Actually was planning to buy epsom salt today and would have planned to visit some chemical stores tomorrow.


you do not need magnesium now? Once you do regular calcium dosing then it is required. You will find one receipe of mixing magnesium chloride and magnesium sulphate. Use that recipe if you want to at later stage.

Epsom salt ( Magnesium sulphate0 is easily available in any medical store. There are chemical stores in college street you can try them out.

my experiments :

1. Took sodium bicarbonate sold in medicine shop and took hardly a spoonful and added water in bisleri bottle to check solubility.
Inference : Hopelessly milky solution came to life...shook the bottle enough and still nothing much...no visible sediments but not the transparent solution i witnessed.

2. Tried "cooking" the same powder
before shoving in the micro oven it was clustered ...took a flat dish (micro oven proof) and put it in and set it to 10 mins at first. Got bored within the first 4 mins only and stopped the clock and opened to see what difference occured.

Inference : Very hot...the clustered powder seemed much more uniform now. got an idea how it would be after 30 mins of cooking and i was content with it. tried mixing it in an empty bottle of bisleri 1L and i funneled the dry hot powder in the bottle and added water and saw it was a little more soluble than the previous experiment :P


Had fun with chemistry!!

just waiting to see what happens when it sediments!
So, now expert chef (kesto da)...is this how part B is supposed to be made? :P
