Growing Nicotiana Rustica L.

As the isolation of nicotine from a plant has been a particular interest I decided to plant high nicotine content nicotiana rustica. The isolation may be possible by a steam distillation of the high nicotine content roots and leaves. The nicotine may be recovered from the distillate with dichloromethane or methylene chloride. The nicotine may be further purified by addition of sulfuric acid and then removal of organic substances by non-halogenated organic solvents. The seeds arrived on 12.5.2016 and they were sowed in the same day.
