Am I wrong on this?
Based on my math (using Sciencelab’s pricing)
Price/Gram of manganese dioxide (MnO2) - $.016/gram
Price/mL of Chloroform - $.0517/mL
At $1/gram for 4 AD, and using the equation
1g 4AD + 100mL chloroform + 10g MnO2
The price should be:
1g-4AD x (1$/gram) + 100mL-Chlorofrom x ($.0517/mL) + 10g-MnO2 x (.016) = $6.33 for a 93% yield
Thus, the price per gram is approx $6.8/gram
The synovex conversion cost me approx $7/gram for materials.
Of course, this assume Sicenclab’s manganese dioxide is active.
