When adding the NaOH actually you will get voluminous white clouds of (probably) DMT just at pH 7,5+. I always thought what will happen if I would just try to collect those, but they are probably too fine to ever be filtered. Then if adding more base as you tell it will go dark - while the clouds will also vanish. So I thought DMT will for some weird reason dissolve again at pH > 10.

But that means you can still get some precipitation? Could be a nice thing, as you would not get any risk for emulsions. How does the final product look like - is it very fine dust and therefore you might spill some over, when decanting water?

And probably biggest question what is the yield? Love

Good quality Syrian rue (Peganum harmala) for an incredible price!

Seems like the OP deleted their post?

I decided to give it a go with some Acacia Confusa sample that I had lying around.
After adding NaOH it went dark even before reaching a ph of 10.
Id say the solution gets a bit cloudier, bit its hard to tell, either way it all seems to stay in suspension.

Out of dissapointment I tried adding some NaCl just to see if something could happen, and now there is definitely "stuff" precipitating, I tried adding salt to the acidid solution but that doesnt seem create any sort of precipitation.

I guess now I have to find out wether this stuff is DMT or not.
