USED TO PASS PEAPLE OUT... DON'T SMELL THE STUFF.

-bleach or pool shock
-acetone
-a lot of ice
-glass or woolden stirrer

key:
5 ml acetone for 1/2 cup pool shock
5ml acetone for 1 cup bleach

just react in a jar or something (glass) sitting the jar in an ice bath. easy!!!

1. ASSEMBLE YOUR MATERIALS BEFOREHAND. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF ICE, YOU'LL NEED TO REFRESH THE SUPPLY AT LEAST ONCE DURING THE REACTION.

 
2. POUR YOUR BLEACH INTO A GLASS OR BUCKET.  I USED 1 CUP OF BLEACH WHICH IS NOT ENOUGH FOR A USEFUL REACTION.

  DO YOU NEED TO ASK?
3.   ADD AN EXCESS OF ICE TO THE BLEACH AND ALLOW IT TO COOL FOR 5 MINUTES.  REPLACE ANY ICE THAT MELTS.

  STARTING WITH COLD BLEACH CONTROLS THE TEMPERATURE LATER, AS WELL AS SLOWING THE REACTION.  BOTH ARE A GOOD IDEA IN THIS CASE.
4.   ADD ONE VOLUME OF ACETONE FOR EVERY 50 VOLUMES OF HOUSEHOLD BLEACH (THE RATIO IS 25:1 IF USING POOL SHOCK).  I USED ABOUT 5 ML OF ACETONE FOR MY 1 CUP OF BLEACH.  BE WATCHING FOR THE REACTION OVERHEATING; ADD ICE IF IT MELTS.  IN ABOUT 10 TO 20 MINUTES THE REACTION WILL BEGIN TO CLOUD UP:
  THE CHLOROFORM IS INSOLUBLE AND FALLS OUT OF THE SOLUTION.  IT TAKES TIME TO SETTLE, HOWEVER, WHICH MAKES THE SOLUTION APPEAR CLOUDY.
5. WHEN THE REACTION IS NEARLY COMPLETE (20+ MINUTES), THE ENTIRE VESSEL WILL HAVE CLOUDED (SAVE FOR THE LIQUID NEAREST THE ICE) AND MOST OF THE GREENISH BLEACH COLOR WILL BE GONE.

  THE COLOR CHANGE INDICATES ALL THE BLEACH HAS BEEN REACTED.
6.  ALLOW THE SOLUTION TO SETTLE FOR A HALF HOUR.  IF IT STILL HASN'T SETTLED, GIVE IT A FEW STIRS.  IF YOU HAVE DONE A LARGE REACTION (1+ GALLON) THIS PROBABLY ISN'T NECESSARY.   STIRRING HELPS THE CHLOROFORM DROPLETS COALESCE INTO DROPS BIG ENOUGH TO SETTLE.
7. IN A SHORT WHILE THE CHLOROFORM WILL HAVE COLLECTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE VESSEL.  IN SMALL REACTIONS, IT WILL APPEAR TO BE A POWDER AT THE BOTTOM.  LARGER REACTIONS WILL SEE A DUSTY / CLEAR 'BUBBLE'.   SMALL REACTIONS DON'T PRODUCE ENOUGH CHLOROFORM TO PRESS ITSELF INTO A SINGLE DROP.  BYPRODUCT SALTS FROM THE REACTION CLING TO THE DROPLETS' SURFACE AND ISOLATE THEM FROM ONE ANOTHER.  A LARGE REACTION WILL PRODUCE ENOUGH GLOBULES SUCH THAT THEIR OWN WEIGHT WILL PRESS THEM INTO A SINGLE MASS.
8.   VERY CAREFULLY POUR OFF MOST OF THE REMAINING SOLUTION, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO LOOSE ANY CHLOROFORM.

 
9. EXTRACT THE CHLOROFORM WITH A SEPARATION FUNNEL OR OTHER INSTRUMENT.  DON'T USE AN EYEDROPPER ; HEAT FROM YOUR BODY WILL CREATE PRESSURE IN THE DROPPER AND CAUSE CHLOROFORM TO SQUIRT OUT.
