Hey Cacophony, making that ammonium tri-iodide! Fun stuff, big clouds of purple smoke, and purple stains on whatever got hit! I made it in an unsupervised H.S. Chem lab, also. Except, I apparently spilled a little on the floor. A couple days later, the teacher said the floor was going snap, crackle, pop as he walked around. So we got a lecture on what ammonium tri-iodide is, and how to make it, but to not do it. Too bad iodine is no longer easy to come by!
