Re: Has anyone had luck with making their own lugol's?

i made my own. i used my own distilled water, reagent grade potassium iodide, and Iodine i bought from emovendo on ebay. it worked fine.

i posted about it before, but here is the deal. mix the KI with a little bit of the water first. this makes a very strong solution of KI that is very cold. i was making 500ml of lugols, so i used under 100ml of water to dissolve the KI. then add the elemental iodine. the super strong KI allows the I2 to dissolve in minutes instead of hours if i had added all the water in and added the I2 last. then i filled the bottle the rest of the way with water. viola! lugols!
