Ok what kind of environment do I have to create for the reaction to take place? I'm turning an old propane tank into a reaction chamber and to achieve the temperatures required for reaction I will run a DC current through the material. Will filling the chamber with argon be sufficient or does it need to be a vacuum chamber? If so how much of a vacuum is necessary?

I am not convinced it is a safe enough experiment to be discussed here.
