  1. Nitrobenzene sounds really toxic. I saw a space movie where a crew member goes outside the orbiter but gets benzene on himself and they won’t let him back in.

  2. is the yellow layer simply water?

    edit: nevermind, video describes it. he’s washing crude nitrobenzene with hydroxide solution to remove any acid. yellow is likely nitrophenols dissolved into the basic water.

  3. I thought this might be from E&Fs cubane project. But nah that lighting is not nearly shed-y enough.

    Edit: and there’s a non-shed background
