Greetings, dear colleagues. I do not know in which topic to post this question. Therefore, I created a new one. The question is simple: Is it possible to use industrial chemicals in laboratory practice? I am interested in your opinion. Is there a significant difference between self-made materials and industrial production? This greatly simplifies the work. I'm talking about alcohol, alkalis, acids, etc.
The material-operator relationship must be very strong, so when you make your own alcohol, for example, this relationship will be reinforced, and you never know for sure the origin of the products you buy.
Of course you can, why not?
You just can’t ingest the results nor give to other people to ingest is all.
So if your intention is to make a medicine, then industrial chemicals should be used only for proof of concept.
Then once you’ve demonstrated a path works, you’ll have to redo it using food grade, pharmaceutical grade or self made chemicals.
