PRODUCTS OF DETONATION OF TNT.1 By CHARLES E. MUNROE and SPENCER P. HOWELL. (Read Ap ) The behavior of an explosive and the uses to which it may properly be put depend in a large measure on the form of the reac-tion or reactions it undergoes on explosion and the character of the products of these reactions. Furthermore, pri- mary detonation products of both surface level and underwater detonations may react with seawater to form secondary products which may be toxic. Experimental The detonation chamber, the sampling probe configurations, and the method to produce the oxygen-deficient atmosphere used in this study have been de- scribed previously .Cited by: 1.

Trinitrotoluene (TNT) Not available Section 3: Hazards Identification TNT is a Division explosive, and detonation may cause severe physical injury, including death. All explosives are dangerous and must be handled carefully and used following approved safety.
The geoecological risks for the environment of test explosions with a Trinitrotoluene (TNT) equivalent of kg have been experimentally estimated according to Eq. (). Estimates of the specific density of acoustic energy [Eq. ()] at distances of and 10 km from the explosion have been obtained. S.C. Gad, in Encyclopedia of Toxicology (Third Edition), Abstract. Trinitrotoluene (TNT) () is used as a high explosive for military and industrial applications. It is also an intermediate in the production of dyes and photographic chemicals. Ingestion, inhalation, and dermal contact are possible routes of exposure. ANQ has good features, such as high nitrogen content (%), big density ( g cm -3), decent detonation velocity ( km s -1) and detonation pressure ( GPa) [21,22], suggesting that. Trinitrotoluene (/ ˌ t r aɪ ˌ n aɪ t r oʊ ˈ t ɒ lj u iː n /; TNT), or more specifically 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, is a chemical compound with the formula C 6 H 2 (NO 2) 3 CH yellow solid is occasionally used as a reagent in chemical synthesis, but it is best known as an explosive material with convenient handling properties. The explosive yield of TNT is considered to be the.
2,4,6-Trinitrotoluene (TNT) November Introduction. This fact sheet, developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Federal Facilities Restoration and Reuse Office (FFRRO), provides a summary of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), including its physical and chemical properties; environmental and health impacts; existing. How do I make Trinitrotoluene? I’d recommend becoming a chemist and establishing a career in the employ of chemical companies that produce explosives. In a nutshell, the manufacturing process involves exposing toluene to nitric and sulfuric acid i. This particular trinitrotoluene is one of the six isomeric compounds of that name, and is the one formed by the commercial nitration of toluene. Chem-ically it is the a, , or " symmetrical" tri-nitrotoluene. Trinitrotoluene belongs to the shattering class of explosives known as the " brisants." The members. The fluorescence signal of CdSe quantum dots was enhanced proportionally with the bovine serum albumin concentration from to 5 µg/mL. This nano-bioconjugate was employed for the determination of trinitrotoluene with a detection limit of ppm trinitrotoluene across a linear range of × 10 −6 M to × 10 −6 M.
