preparation of silver azide using sodium azide

8 1/2 grams of melt cast with 1/2 gram ETN as a booster and 02 HMTD blasting cap. Looks to me like some of the RDX may have been destroyed during the casting and thats why the PETN outperformed the RDX.

Melt cast RDX/ETN also PETN/ETN 3 1/2 parts ETN to 5 parts RDX and 3 1/2 parts ETN to 5 parts PETN. On the PETN mix i could have only 2 to 2 1/2 grams ETN but did the same amount for test purposes.

Synthesis of RDX with heat treatment to destroy unstable and undesirable linear nitramines so it will with stand long storage.

Synthesis of tetraamine copper 2 perchlorate made form copper wire ammonium perchlorate and ammonium hydroxide. . Detonation Velocity, around ~4300 m/s

Baby raccoon found in my front yard

99% + nitric acid. This acid can be used for making things like RDX and other picky synthesis that don't like water or other contaminants.

I built and painted this care well over 10 years ago. Very fast and fun. Looking to sell or trade for a 4x4 truck.

Synthesis of PETN (Pentaerythritol tetranitrate) from start to finish including recrystallization. Detonation velocity (m/s) 8,400 Density (g/cm³) 1.70

ETN mixed with nitrocellulose surrounded with perchlorate dark Al flash just for affect.

Sodium hypochlorite ( bleach) from table salt / sodium chloride then to sodium chlorate part 2

Sodium hypochlorite ( bleach) from table salt / sodium chloride then to sodium chlorate part 1

Potassium chlorate from potassium chloride / water softener salt.

Making potassium chlorate from water softener salt

Erythritol tetranitrate Detonation velocity (m/s) 8100 Density (g/cm³) 1.60

Making fire with water , zinc sodium chloride and ammonium nitrate

ETN/EGDN/NC plastic explosive. Very nasty and unsafe to make and use.

nitric acid made cheap

Wait for the last on lol

HMTD blasting cap setting off 1/2 a gram of ETN

ETN plastic explosive

VoD = 3850 m/s. LOL junk

Nasty stuff... Don't try try this at home!!! Ethylene glycol dinitrate M/S 7,300 Density in ( g/cm3) 1.48 Very very powerful and very sensitive to friction and impact
