Very interesting video, thank you for your work.I have two questions : how did you filter the palladium coated carbon (I only saw a paper filter) ?And, of course : what does the final product taste like :)
Anonymous, I used 11-micron filter paper, which is all that I have. It catches most of the catalyst, but there is still a trace that gets through the filter. I'd probably need 1-micron paper to catch all of it.My glassware isn't clean enough for handling food. I'm pretty sure the product would taste like thickened olive oil ;)
Many thanks for your interesting and informative videos!I'm pretty sure you already know this, but better to be safe than sorry, and for others too: hydrogenated (also unhydrogenated) carbon containing catalysts are easily a fire hazard when they dry or get in contact with certain solvents I think. Spontaneous combustion can happen.Thanks again!
