    Ephedrine HCI and HCL


    I received my Biotek and Vasopor today ( fast shipping by the way) and was reading the bottles. One says Ephedrine HCI and the other says Ephedrine HCL. Whats the difference?

    A typo.

    HCI would be a non-existant molecule to my knowledge. A carbon (C) requires 4 bonds to be happy. Iodine (I) can only bond once, same as a hydrogen ion (H).

    But, Cl (chlorine) can have one bond to be happy (same is iodine as they are in the same row on the periodic table).

    That is your chemistry lesson for today - my lad.

    BTW - way to post this thread twice.

    Thanks for the info. And my reason for posting twice was because after I had posted in here I figured I wouldn't get a response because this thread is geared more towards people asking when products are going to be available and such. Thanks again though.
