"glacial acetic acid+morphine=heroin?"
 
   Okay, I heard it mentioned earlier on the board that glacial acetic acid can be used to acetylate morphine to heroin. Could I get some measurements? Say some lucky person who is not fbetsy has 40 grams of opium and is interested in making some black tar. How much glacial acetic acid would need to be used to carry out this reaction?

   Someone should use 120-160ml.

   Very Intereststing. I have heard from a reliable source that glacial acetic cannot be used in place of acetic annhydride. Anyone out there have first-hand (okay lets say 'eyewitness') successful results with this? Thanks

   Actually, after getting this response I sought out a second opinion (someone with Ph.D. in organic chem.), and he said the reaction needs acetic anhydride. So, who knows ....

   In theory, a friend had 50mg morphine, which was mixed with GAA, left to react for a few days, then dried. What seemed to be the result was morphine with a slight GAA odor, nothing more.
It might be possible, but this friend had no luck, in theory.

ALAS!
