It finally came…

Today, on this post, I’m going to do something different. I’m going to open/unpack my science supplies, so I’m not expecting to get any likes on this. If you’re interested, please continue reading.

A week ago, I ordered some chemistry supplies from the internet. The company’s name is Sci-Trader which is in Thailand (hopefully if you’re in Thailand and wanna order some supplies, the link will be in the comment section below). I placed this order on June 12, 2017.

And I spent about $60 on this! I repeat, 60 dollars!

So don’t go away.

I’m excited.

Let’s see what I’ve ordered.20170616_18524120170616_185255

There are two heavy boxes. Let’s start with the first, the square box. (As you could see, I cheated on the first).

There is lots of foam and newspaper.

Ohh! I know what this is.20170616_185319

Ok, I’ll let you guess. A flask? No. A funnel? Close. I gave up. Then I’ll open it.20170616_185617

You probably don’t know what this is and can’t really see it because of the white background. That is called a separatory funnel. A separatory funnel, also known as separation funnel, separating funnel, or colloquially sep funnel, is a piece of laboratory glassware used in liquid-liquid extractions to separate (partition) the components of a mixture into two immiscible solvent phases of different densities. Typically, one of the phases will be aqueous, and the other a lipophilic organic solvent such as etherMTBEdichloromethanechloroform, or ethyl acetate. All of these solvents form a clear delineation between the two liquids. The more dense liquid, typically the aqueous phase unless the organic phase is halogenated, sinks and can be drained out through a valve away from the less dense liquid, which remains in the separatory funnel.

Ok, we are not talking about the funnel today.

Let’s take out the next thing.

Wow, this one is only in a bag.20170616_185653

This is called a ring clamp. Some of you probably know what this tool does (if you don’t click on the link ↑). I bought this for the funnel.

Alright on to the next item.

Man, this came in a… bag, I guess.20170616_185724

I opened the bag and these are the stuff in it:20170616_185836

The supplies are: Potassium Iodide, Lead (II) Nitrate, a plastic ring clamp (in case the other one doesn’t work), and the neodymium magnet.

Ok the first box is finished.

On to the second one.20170616_190121

Pretty hard to open it…20170616_190301

Yay! it’s the retort stand. This is a common science tool. Again, if you don’t know what this is press the link ↑ 20170616_190837

Now, my followers, I’m in the advanced science tools. That means the experiments will be harder.

Thank you for reading.

  1. Well, hoped you had fun with that post. I bought a total of 7 items. This cost 63.59 dollars or 2,160 thai baht (if you don’t know what thai baht is, click the link below).

    Yay! Very exciting receiving your parcels. 🙂 I always wanted a separating flask; they are so useful.
