Oh, wow. That was an energetic reaction. Not as bright as thermite, but hot enough to burn through the steel pan it was on.
So I just throw the powdery stuff left over into some HCl?
Once it has fully reacted to AlCl3 and BaCl2 do I force it out of solution by fractional crystallization (after evaporating off excess HCl)? Or can I through a base into solution and only precipitate out one species?
