shts and giggles.
take glass of wine
Wine has sulfur dioxide as a preservative.
this clef du vin has copper and some funny stuff in it.
maybe it has potassium permanaganate, i mean the stuff is purple.
so MnO4 + H -> Mn2 + H2O
SO2 + H20 -> SO4 + H -> H2SO4 + Mn
so you have sulfuric acid with Manganese
Now Sulfuric acid with the presence of ethanol (granted you have to heat it, but whatever shts and giggles) will give the following reaction
3HC-CH2-OH + H2SO4 => (C2H5)2O.
which would make one happy =)This message has been edited. Last edited by: g-man,

Potassium permanganate? Don't mix it with glycerin. It'll melt Pyrex.
Just one more sip.
The 1883 and later pennies are pure copper over an 99.2% Zn/.08% Cu core.
Prior to that back to the civil war (other than for a few years in WWII), they have been 95% copper with 5% of Zinc and/or Tin (varies from year to year).
