I was reading this question about Breaking Bad on the Movies & TV Stack Exchange site and I'm wondering:
If you spill dirt in methylamine, can you extract the methylamine back out?
My very basic level of understanding leads me to believe that if you heat the resulting mud, you should be able to dry out the dirt and return it to its normal state, and likely create some type of vapor. But, I'm probably completely wrong.
So, is this possible?
