Mexico has enhanced regulatory laws on the importation of precursor chemicals, including regulations for imports of phenylacetic acid (including its salts, esters, and derivatives), methylamine, hydriodic
acid, and red phosphorous.
The default configurations of triphenylphosphine diiodide (Ph [sub]3 PI[sub]2) and silver trifluoromethanesulfonate (AgOTf) solid-phase extraction (SPE) cartridges were cancelled and 57% hydriodic
acid solution was used to accomplish this step instead.
Tenders are invited for supply of pure iodine & hydriodic
The recommended daily intake of hydriodic
acid syrup was 2 to 4 ml.
Synthesis Via Hydriodic
Acid/Red Phosphorus Reduction of Ephedrine, 48
The other components of meth, including hydriodic
acid, are smuggled in or manufactured illegally.
The most widely-used method of manufacturing the drug involves heating pseudoephedrine or ephedrine, red phosphorus and hydriodic
The manufacture of methamphetamine involves strong acids (such as hydriodic
acid), highly flammable chemicals (such as ether, acetone and red phosphorous), and poisons (including iodine and mercury, salts) (Horne 1997, Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2002, Australian Bureau of Criminal Intelligence 2001, 2002, Matthews 2001).
First, the cooking stage where the chemicals ephedrine, hydriodic
acid, and red phosphorous are mixed and heated at various stages for about 12 hours and then strained to remove the red phosphorous, which is not water soluble and is fatal in large doses.
