The use of large volumes of solvents poses twin problems:
obtaining them and disposing of them. Both problems are made vastly

simpler by recycling the solvents. Just because a solvent has been
used once in a given stage of the process does not mean its useful
lifetime is over. For example, the solvent used for defatting the crop is
easily made as good as new by distilling it to free it of its load of fat.
Other solvents are not so easily recovered for re-use because the
procedure calls for the given solvent to be removed from the product
by vacuum evaporation. In this case, the solvent can be collected in a
cold trap placed along the vacuum line on its way to the vacuum
source. If a pump is used to create the vacuum, such a trap is vital to
prevent solvent vapors from getting into the pump oil, thereby ruining
the lubrication and the vacuum created.
A cold trap can be constructed of either glass or steel; it need only be
large enough to hold the solvent collected, and airtight so as not to ruin
the vacuum with leaks. This cold trap is then cooled down with dry ice
during vacuum evaporations to condense the solvent vapors in the trap.
The solvent recovered in the trap can be re-used in the given stage of
the process from whence it came. I would not co-mingle recovered
solvents from different stages. For example, chloroform from the
alkaloid extraction of the crops should be kept for that usage, and not
be used for LSD crystallization, because it will also contain some
ammonia and methanol.
The recovery of ether, for example, from method 2 of lysergic acid
production, poses a special problem. This problem is the formation of
explosive peroxides in ether during storage. Ether containing water
and alcohol, as would be the case for this recovered solvent, does not
form much peroxide. There is a possibility that dry ether can be made
free of peroxides by shaking the ether with some 5% ferrous sulfate
(FeSO4) solution in water prior to distilling. Failure to do this may
expose the operator to a fiery explosion during distillation. Ice water
flowing through the condenser, and an ice-chilled receiving flask, are
required to get an efficient condensation of the ether during

The dangers of LSD manufacturing do not end with the possibility
that the cooker may spill some of the stuff on himself and fry his
brain. There is a much more malignant danger facing those who
embark upon this course: Johnny Law.

the alumina, two zones that fluoresce blue can be spotted by
illumination with a black light. The faster-moving zone contains LSD,
while the slower-moving zone is iso-LSD.
When the zone containing LSD reaches the spigot of the burette, it
should be collected in a separate flask. About 3000 ml of the 3-1
benzene-chloroform is required to get the LSD moved down the
chromatography column, and finally eluted.
The iso-LSD is then flushed from the column by switching the
solvent being fed into the top of the column to chloroform. This
material is collected in a separate flask, and the solvent removed
under a vacuum. The residue is iso-LSD, and should be stored in the
freezer until conversion to LSD is undertaken. Directions for this are
also given in this chapter.
For the fraction containing the LSD, conversion to LSD tartrate
must be done to make it water soluble, improve its keeping
characteristics, and to allow crystallization. Tartaric acid has the
ability to react with two molecules of LSD. Use, then, of a 50% excess of
tartaric acid dictates the use of about 1 gram of tartaric acid to 3
grams of LSD. The three grams of LSD would be expected from a
well-done batch out of a total 3.5 LSD/iso-LSD mix.
The crystalline tartrate is made by dissolving one gram of tartaric
acid in a few mis of methanol, and adding this acid solution to the
benzene-chloroform elute from the chromatography column.
Evaporation of the solvent to a low volume under a vacuum gives
crystalline LSD tartrate. Crystals are often difficult to obtain. Instead,
an oil may result due to the presence of impurities. This is not cause
for alarm; the oil is still likely 90%+ pure. It should be bottled up in
dark glass, preferably under a nitrogen atmosphere, and kept in a
freezer until moved.
If chromatography reveals that one's chosen cooking method
produces little of the iso products, then the production of the tartrate
salt and crystallization is simplified. The residue obtained at the end

of the batch is dissolved in a minimum amount of methanol. To this is
then added tartaric acid. The same amount is added as above: one gram
tartaric acid to three grams LSD. Next, ether is slowly added with
vigorous stirring until a precipitate begins to form. The stoppered flask is
then put in the freezer overnight to complete the precipitation. After
filtering or centrifuging to isolate the product, it is transferred to a dark
bottle, preferably under nitrogen, and kept in the freezer until moved.

Two variations on this procedure will be presented here. The first is
the method of Smith and Timmis from The Journal of the
Chemistry Society Volume 139, H pages 1168-1169 (1936). The other is
found in US patent 2,736,728. Both use the action of a strong
hydroxide solution to convert iso material into a mixture that contains
active and iso material. At equilibrium, the mixture contains about 2/3
