I have a chemistry question, and was wondering if anyone on here could help me. Please understand, that I don't know jack about chemistry, and could use some simple guidance.--Larry
ok, and where do I find these things? I mean, I remember a science class in highschool where we took some pure sodium (I think), and had it react with water...but I would agree...not sure that would make a flame and ignite firewood.Now, this idea of glycerine and permanganate powder...how much, and where would I find pure glycerine, and this KMnO4 stuff?
Also, suggestions on how to introduce the glycerine to the powder from a distance of, say, 10-15 feet?
I'm trying to envision this working, and starting the tinder....how long would the "small flame" burn?
and is it hot enough to start wood shavings and/or dryer lint?
Rocketeers use a mix of hypoglopic chemicals I believe nitro tetraoxide is one but I don't know the other but I am sure some experts here do.
