Red Phosphorus from Matchboxes. Hey guys, today we are getting a little bit of Red P by scraping it off of matchboxes. This method is meant mostly for demonstration purposes. I don't condone the use of Red P for any illegal purposes. Also, the Red P that we get isn't super pure. There are some other things mixed into it.
The yield from this method is super low too, so you really won't be able to mass produce Red P. It it really only useful for the small scale experiments.
Also, just as a side-note, videos like these are no charged to Patreon supporters. It is free to everyone
