Potassium Nitrate, or saltpeter is used as a fertilizer, and is a key ingredient in the creation of blackpowder. Some of you may be wondering where I'm going with this, so I'm just going to come out and say my point. Finding it on the internet is easy, but I've had trouble finding a store near me. I live in Colorado Springs, so if any of you guys know of any STORES that carries it could you let me know?
Thanks, Zip.

I suggest looking in the yellow pages. Maybe under "terrorism" or "illegal activites"?

You can usually get black powder if you claim you're a pirate re-enactment society or something.

I know a guy who has a licence to make ammunition - he makes some great gunpowder.

Why do you want gunpowder? To be 'badass'?

I wish I could help you in your search. Not because I want to, but only because I want to see you blow your arm off.

gun stores sell gunpowder... just buy it. or you could make it yourself. but then you might blow yourself up, or blow you arm off, a la Mitch Baker in GTA: Vice City.

Chemistry project you say?

You've sparked my interest now. Explain what you need it for specifically then.

And what chemistry project requires you to use potassium nitrate, out of interest? Especially an oxidizing agent that really should be used in a fume cupboard. The school should provide you with potassium nitrate for in school use only, for safety's sake. I recommend mixing acetic acid with methanol instead.
#22
would it not be easier to just bye the black powder?

and isnt potassium nitrate also a key ingriedient in crystal-meth?

or is that some other type of stuff?
I can do it!

And so can you!

I expect it'll be the kind of chemistry project that involves a magnesium fuse, a tin can and a hole in the lawn.

Is there a chemistry teacher ate your school...

Any chemistry teacher has to have potassium nitrate....


We used it yester day in a lab....


We had to desolve it in water.... which it donesn't do very well....


Exept at high temperatures....

No, I'm not making a bomb. I told you, it's for CHEMISTRY! I'm the Teachers Assistant for the class, and they're doing a project with the chemical. Something with soil and plants and different chemicals. The project is in a few days, but some dumb kid stole his(probably to make a bomb). My teacher doesn't have time to order it from his supplier, so he asked me to help him find places in town to pick up the stuff. And thats what I'm doing. I'm not making meth or making a bomb.

the potassium in the banana should join with the nitrogen and oxygen already in the air. therefor KNO3.

For the sake of your exam then I hope you were joking.

no dude.

i am not.

bananas are clearly the number one source of potassium.
simply unpeeling one would cause atomic bonds of ridiculous proportion.

Yes. Because peeling a banana instigates the Haber Process.



You need ammonia to produce a nitrate.
