A Question About Lead Azide


Hello, I need an explanation to produce lead azide.
What is the current formula which has been used for commercial detonation? Is it the dextrinous one?
Can you give a link attached to its explanation? I will have it translated.

What language?

Chemistry is somewhat universal.

What if i synthesise lead-acid as that link, can i ignite the anfo or ammonal? My goal is to use primary explosive without any accident.

Pb(NO3)2 + 2NaN3 = Pb(N3)2 precipitate, but be careful. OK when wet but sensitive to friction and impact when dry. Explodes with a loud report when lit with a fuse

I have a decent amount of experience with silver azide. The precipitate is incredibly fine and holds a considerable amount of water. It is difficult to dry completely without it decomposing somewhat. I normally put it on something in a Tupperware container that has a layer of CaCl2 and has an atmosphere of "dust off". For a reliable ignition with a fuse you must add a little ignition composition on top. perchlorate/benzoate works well.

Don't try to make that sodium azide/lead nitrate reaction without adding 10% dextrin to the water. The dextrin makes sure that microscopic crystals form, rather than larger ones, which blow up due to stresses in their structures. Dextrinating the water makes for a buff colored lead azide which is every bit as capable of setting stuff off, but will tolerate me jumping on it with both feet without it going off.....

Happy blasting.
