When all the acid mixture has dripped in, 25 ml of acetic acid is added to the sep funnel and dripped in. This flushes the last of the product out of the catalyst bed. The product in the 500 ml flask consists of a lower water layer and a brown-colored organic layer on top. It is poured into a 1000 ml sep funnel; the water layer is then drained off into a clean beaker, and the organic layer is poured into another beaker. The water layer is put back into the sep funnel along with 50 ml of benzene, and the funnel is shaken.

If he has access to hexane from some industrial source, that will do fine. Petroleum ether is flammable, so the way he makes the ether hot is to place the flask with the crystals into a pan of hot water, and to begin adding the petroleum ether to it. He swirls it around while adding the petroleum ether and keeps adding ether until the crystals are dissolved. The result will be a clear yellow solution. Now he records how much petroleum ether he added and places the flask on the hot plate and sets up the glassware for simple distillation as shown in Figure 3 in Chapter 3.

The reduction is similar to the use of activated aluminum in the reaction to produce methamphetamine without the bomb, in that the metal, in this case iron, dissolves and produces hydrogen which reduces the nitroalkene. It is not as complicated as it sounds, and is pretty easy to do. The nitroalkene is first reduced to phenylacetone oxime, which is then hydrolyzed to phenylacetone. You may wonder, looking at the structure of the nitroalkene molecule, if it is not possible to reduce it directly to the prototype amphetamine, benzedrine.
