 A group of researchers in Tennessee and Denmark has discovered a way to sensitively detect explosives based on the physical properties of their vapors. Their technology, which is currently being developed into prototype devices for field testing, is described in the latest issue of the journal Review of Scientific Instruments, which is published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP)."Certain classes of explosives have unique thermal characteristics that help to identify explosive...

New explosives could be more powerful and safer to handle than TNT and other conventional explosives and would also be more environmentally friendly. TNT, RDX and other explosives commonly used in military and industrial applications often generate toxic gases upon detonation that pollute the environment. Moreover, the explosives themselves are toxic and can find their way into the environment due to incomplete detonation and as unexploded ordnance. They are also extremely...

New spray-on films developed by UC San Diego chemists will be the basis of portable devices that can quickly reveal trace amounts of nitrogen-based explosives.Contaminated fingerprints leave dark shadows on the films, which glow blue under ultraviolet light. One of the films can distinguish between different classes of explosive chemicals, a property that could provide evidence to help solve a crime, or prevent one.A recent episode of CSI: Miami featured the technology, which linked...

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md., May 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new production process for the Army's most widely used explosive, TNT, is now underway at Radford Army Ammunition Plant, Va. The process replaced technology that created more than 60,000 pounds per day of "red water," named for the color of TNT exposed to air. Radford completely eliminated the environmental toxin -- and its estimated $1 million annual disposal bill -- from the production of the explosive. During the Vietnam...

Dynamite, invented by Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel in 1867, is an explosive that harnesses the potential of nitroglycerin to explode. Normally it is sold in an 8 inch long stick and weighs about .6 pounds although other sizes do exist. TNT is usually the standard by which explosive power is gauged; however, dynamite actually has more than 60% greater energy density than TNT. Nitroglycerin dissolved in nitrocellulose and a small amount of ketone can form another type of dynamite. This type...
