RE: Morton Salt
"Morton" is just a brand name (perhaps just in the US?) for ordinary table
salt, NaCl. For salt water caps, a saturated solution of ANY salt, any
brand, any grade, iodized, non-iodized, will work fine - NaCl, CaCl,
Magnesium Sulphate, etc. The goal is simply to make the liquid inside the
bottle as conductive as possible. As long as the salt is ionic, that's all
that matters - there is no chemical reaction involved.

salt which is used is supposed to be "Mortons-Salt".
I have no idea at all what Mortons Salt is. As I live in Germany I must know
the German name for it, but I could find no explanation at all in any of my
If somone can give me the formula, or the name according to the UIPAC
standards, I will know what it is, and I will be able to detemine the German
name for it. Thanks in advance,
