Where can I extract PTC(Phenylthiocarbamide)?
Can it be extracted from food like fruits, veggies etc?
It has to be harmless. I think im gonna use it for a case study.
And please PM or email me if you know something about PTC and its relation to human taste morphism.

It is not going to be worthwhile for you to extract or synthesize PTC on your own, if you need it for a case study. You can synthesize PTC from plants likes nightshade and some cabbages but it is pretty chem intensive and you'll need a full lab access. Why don't you just buy some PTC strips so you can safely use it on yourself and others? Here is a link to buy PTC strips. It is cheap and safe to use.
