My manganese heptoxide cleanup was a mess

Dipublikasikan tanggal 14 Jun 2019
This is a follow-up to the video on my main channel:

In that video, I made the unstable and strong oxidizer called manganese heptoxide. When I was done though, I had a lot of manganese and acid waste that I had to deal with.

I initially planned to be done after isolating the waste, but as the last minute, I decided to try melting it. I don't consider that to be part of the waste processing though, and it's more of an experiment on its own.

In general, I don't recommend heating waste because it can sometimes be dangerous and it can also generate toxic fumes.

Nile talks about lab safety:

  • Instead of using several chemicals to clean your manganese contaminated glassware, use HCl. It will dissolve Mn2+, reduce Mn4+ and Mn7+ by giving Cl2 in the process. After dissolving and converting every soluble and not soluble manganese compound to higly soluble rose colored Mn2+, you can recover it easily. No need ethanol or other acids. You're welcome.

  • There goes him burning stuff again

  • NileBlue: The yellowness of it kind of threw me off and I didn't feel comfortable with it. Me: (Exactly 1 minute later) WHEEZE!

  • 6:32 there’s a smile on it, it’s finally happy that it’s dead

  • I've just watched your video though

  • i like your funny words magic man

  • What the fuck is inside the “acid” box? Why is not acid?

  • Most of this channel is him wanting to do something then not doing it and doing something else

  • A bunch of this, a bunch of that... A man of your intellect should know a few other terms to address different amounts of things.

  • "some men just want to watch the world burn." i think some men applies to you.

  • Can you show us how or where you dispose your used glassware?

  • My brain legot died when he started to take chemical names

  • Make another channel called NileYellow for the cleanup

  • Can u pin me? Ur really cool

  • Do a vid about ur caution closet and show everything inside it

  • Llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll”l.ll.lll.lll.lll.lllllll.lllllll

  • I will eventually make so much waste I have to higher a hazmat crew.

  • Pay a company? Nah just bury that shit and never speak of it again.

  • My dude be tossin' drain cleaner into his stuff and it always reacts in a good way for cleaning it up. I think I'll put some in my washing machine and dishwasher to ultra clean my dishes.

  • NEVER EVER mix drain cleaner with bleach. You CAN make mustard gas that way.

  • The forbidden cola

  • Ah yes the mark of a fellow scientist... "I should have put the tips in a different beaker, but nah."

  • Looks tasty tho😳

  • Idea title: I MADE PEE

  • 1. NileRed 2. NileBlue 3. NileYellow 4. NileOrange 5. NileGreen 6. NilePurple 7. NileGrey

  • listen to the end... The end is realy funny :-D

  • when u what from ur own what

  • I’m so dumb bruh.

  • I don't understand a word of this but I thoroughly enjoyed it


  • Why do you have two channels, NileRed and NileBlue?

  • 2:39 looks like Coffee

  • Awesome 👍 thanks 😊 for 📸 videos

  • 6:31 The forbidden cHip

  • I'm not gonna lie man, that looks tasty

  • I still have unseen videos. There are a lot 😳

  • Pee

  • Tissue not burn for minute

  • I think I know a certain chemist who would disagree with the words "nice yellow solution"

  • I was thinking whilst watching ‘just imagine he has made urine by accident’ 😂 urine is only waste chemicals our body doesn’t need or use mixed with water after all.

  • The final aim should be to buy a LC-MS to study and classify the exact structure of those wastes in the drawer!

  • Clean up is important, but I don't think there's anyone who can deal with your waste.

  • Me: “I understand everything this guy is saying.” Also Me: “Drankamilkjughypthermicoxide?”

  • i dont understand 58% thing that you say but ok

  • Dig a hole in the ground and trow it there

  • Hmmm 🤔 this name sound familiar but I can’t put my finger on it

  • You should clean and seal up your broken beakers and dishes, then mail them to super luck viewers!!


  • Clay, broken glass and pee... sounds like a normal Tuesday morning to me...

  • him: i want to BURN IT not recommended, ID-tv, but. _FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE_ sick i made a new rock!

  • Rubbing alcohol and the acid twirling the pipettes: THEYRE GROOVIN oh it's a rod

  • Basically “You guys like watching me clean so here we go” “Ok but what if we burn it? (Dont try this at home kids)”

  • Pee-pottery!

  • This dude just made piss

  • I don't know what he's talking about but it's pretty interesting

  • I just pour it down the sink. The third time I did it I ended up with a leak in the out pipe, but I replaced the 2 lengths and all is perfectly fine. I remember this time very clearly because it was when I came down with a bug and something happened to my larynx and trachea which led to losing most of my voicebox. Horrible time. Anyway, back to the disposal.. Just flush it down the sink and all will be fine.

  • Me making potions in 3rd grade be like:

  • Just pour it down the drain who cares?

  • DANGER "ACID" youre not fooling me thats piss bro

  • And before he knew it he recreated the Elephant's Foot 😂😂😂😂


  • 4:57 looks like the last time i tried to bake muffins

  • Thanks for reminding me of Manganese. Literally forgot about it. 🥲

  • Beginning of video: "I'm going to clean some things" Near the end of the video: "I ended up making smelly pee" Science bitch.

  • Where is this fucker buying all these chemicals?

  • Red is better

  • When your chemistry teacher asked you to clean the apparatus While me: playing with the chemical

  • 5:30 Looks like choco cake with a bunch or dark chocolate to me.

  • Your voice is like daily dose of internet

  • everytime he adds a solution i feel like its gonna blast

  • What about you fly to Iceland and film for us what it does when thrown into lava?

  • #save_sheikh_jarrah

  • It's like a puzzle


  • That's how they make thumsup in india

    • U are gonna dje in 2 hours if u drink that

  • Nile: Brainstorms cool and dangerous complex chemical reactions for. views. 1Million people: Just want to watch Nile clean.

  • remember guys, sodium hydroxide drain cleaner is the solution to every problem

  • Or you can just pour somewhere outside and get over with it

  • Is there any nuclear waste in chemical reaction I have heared that there is nuclear reaction in hospitals so in chemicsl reaction there could be a nuclear waste in it if there is what u do about it most countries dump it in container which won't leak and dump it in ground btw thanks for the chemical engineering information

    • @Alexis Grace what about that uranium he made that day

    • When you talk about “chemical reaction” which particular chemical reaction are you talking about? No nuclear waste was every present or produced throughout any part of this chemical reaction or chemical clean up. In hospitals they do gather nuclear wars, but that’s mostly caused by x-rays and CAT scans. The hospitals don’t have to store it because specialist nuclear waste management teams come by and neutralised to make it temporarily safe and then move it offsite to be further broken down into safer by-products and then stored safely until there is no more active radiation (this takes a very long time. Depending on the situation it could be 25-500 years)

  • Hi. If you got the waste you can’t handle yourself, give me a call, I got two blue bins in my back yard that’s very large!

  • U need access to an NMR so u can analyze what your waste is and other things

  • 👍🏽.

  • Its cool to be smart

  • Well Chemistry is a MESS

  • Me who got 20 minutes in before realizing it’s 56 minutes long: *Dang*

    • This is a prank, for the record. Just to confuse some people for a split second.

    • @Ole it screams pyramid scheme

    • @Ranjana Sharan write me a message on insta : @irmicaa_03

    • Pyramid scheme

  • He should spray his stuff with cooking spray so it doesn't stick

  • Looks delicious 🤤 2:30

  • Just pour it down the drain.

  • 5:22 It honestly looks like a broken up muffin

  • You need a girlfriend my guy. I dont know how these potential domestic terrorists have access to all this bs and semiautomatic guns but someone of color can barely get extra napkins from a fast food spot.

    • If you're on multiple watchlists, nobody would bother you because clearly you're just buying a bunch of chemicals to study and play with them lmao

    • He’s not a potential domestic terrorist OMG! Just like everyone else who buys restricted chemicals, he must notify and be registered with the government. The government is fully aware of everything he does, they have checked out his full set up, he has an extremely high amount of chemical knowledge, he knows all the proper emergency procedures, etc. Nothing he creates is dangerous and if it is, he doesn’t show the necessary steps or required chemicals in order for any crazy person to copy him. If the government were worried about what he were doing, he would be doing this. This has nothing to do with color or racism, there are lots of amazing Black and even a few Indigenous people on here who create this exact same content. They are all highly trained! If they weren’t, you’re right.. the government would intervene and stop them!

  • Coca-Cola

  • Yes, more cleanups

  • Eu acho que eu sou o único Brasileiro que vê isso ._.

  • Your *what*

  • my brain hurts

  • I wanted to do science But I’m kinda second guessing myself because if this cleanup

  • 03:20 pee?

  • Who else came from the youtube short, searched this up, pressed the first thing which was this

  • Thing is, who would persecute you if you flushed it? I know, I know, its a scummy horrible thing to do cause it might get into the drinking water supply or a farm, or anywhere bad. But I honestly just wanna know, who would be able to catch you and bother to persecute you for it?
