Transcript of The Science Behind Breaking Bad

What is crystal meth?
works with dopamine
makes us feel pleasure or be in a state of ecstasy
6 times the good feeling than the human body can make
composition of crystal meth
Red, white, and blue process
involves hydrogenation of the hydroxyl group on the ephedrine or pseudoephedrine molecule
highly toxic
unexpectedly flammable
red phosphorous + warm water = EXPLOSION
complex set of reactions form a highly unstable compound leading it to form an explosive
this explosion produces poisonous phosphine gas
Composition of meth
then you mix the ephedrine or pseudoephedrine, the red white and blue process, and the -OH group together
Left together long enough, it would produce liquid droplets which leaves the methamphetamine molecule inside
Wait for it to crystallize
Then you have smoke-able/snort-able meth!!
hydrofluoric acid
Hydrofluoric acid is a highly corrosive chemical
penetrates the skin and causes deep tissue damage
result in limb loss or death
reacts with many materials and should only be stored in polyethylene plastic, lead, or platinum containers
high activity with materials is what caused the HF to eat through Jesse’s bathtub as seen in the clip
reasons not to try meth
and remember to watch breaking bad
