This is by no means my tek - i take no credit for the information contained within. After performing the manske extraction on rue one is left with a freebase mixture of Harmaline and Harmine and allthough this can be used as is having them separate is nice for more control. To separate the two one can take advantage of the difference in their pKa values. The pKa value of a substance is the pH at which half of the substance is in freebase form and the other half in salt form.
- Harmine - pKa=7.7
- Harmaline - pKa=9.8
According to Infundibulum(The Nexus) the best pH to precipitate harmine is at pH 8.75 because at this pH one will in theory get at around 92% harmine and 8% harmaline. If the harmine is precipitated at pH 8 one would get a much purer harmine but not all the harmine in the solution will precipitate. A calculator is available in the original post here
In this tek - Step 2-4 are just for a purer product - after step 1 the solution could be filtered and one could proceed directly to step 5.
Isolation of Harmine
The solutions pH can now be pushed up to 8.75 using a sodium carbonate solution.
Increase the pH to the max using sodium carbonate solution to precipitate the Harmaline. The Harmaline was not as visually pleasing as it grew - it just looked like white sand.
