Cooking with Poison

This is a story of a film experiment I did with chemistry. It involves iron solution for Plant Protection. Go get your goggles and protect your eyes!

In the spring my neighbor sprayed fruit trees in his yard to eliminate iron deficiency. He used Sequestrene Fe 138 SG iron solution from Syngenta AG Basel .When I saw the dark red wine color of the liquid, I immediately thought of the tipster and asked a little quantity for an experiment.

I have some experience with a Russian mix and decided to take 1 spoonful of this solution to the 3 dl of hot water ( 60 Celsius ) and add a pinch of salt and a few drops of lemon. I cooked film in this liquid for three minutes and took care that the temperature does not exceed 60 degrees Celsius. Wash it in a cold water and dry it in a dark place afterwards. This soup can use more time!

WARNING!!!! This soup can be dangerous to the health. Take care of use open the window. Works in the glove and don’t put in mouth and don’t drink it.
Have a fun !!!

    Wow, I can't wait to try this!

    Did you cook it before or after you went out shooting? Did you pull the film out to let it dry? Or let it dry in the canister?
