I had it on understanding it was unless they meant water soluble ( when used with acid ) but I was told this was hydrochloride .

I certainly gave it a good trial run in my magnetic stirrer and it had little effect .

Well I thought maybe making it more acidic might help but it hasnt really done much other than forming a white sludge that looks a lot like the pieces in squeezed orange .
