Make Wild fire!

The wildfire in this video is actually an azeotropic mixture of trimethyl borate and methanol. Trimethyl borate burns with an intense green flame that looks very much like wildfire from "Game of Thrones".

To make it we mix 200g of Borax, 650mL of methanol and 100g of sulfuric acid (98%). We then set up a fractional distillation column and distill of the fraction at 54 degrees Celsius which is azeotropic trimethyl borate.
