How do you make sulphur dip?
In the laboratory, sulphur dioxide is prepared by the reaction of metallic sulphite. A white precipitate will be formed when a reaction between the sulphite and the sulphuric acid is made. This solution is then evaporated under reduced pressure, and the precipitated crystals are washed with water and dried under vacuum. The crystals can then be washed again with the acid solution to remove the insoluble sulphate.
In this way, it is possible to prepare a large number of crystals of the same size and shape from a single solution. In the present invention, the method of preparation is carried out by dissolving the crystals in an organic solvent such as ethyl acetate, methanol or acetone. The emulsions are allowed to stand at room temperature for a period of at least 24 hours, after which they are rinsed with distilled water.
