Does anyone know a viable way to remove the methoxy and acetyl groups without having to reattach the amino group?

I really don't know where to go here and any help would be hugely appreciated.

What type of propellant do you think is being used? The brown smoke in the beginning I believe is from metal oxides.... but the thick white smoke seems peculiar... ?

Any chance they are using a EM we are not familiar with in the west.... my understanding is the Russians are ahead in explosive science.

May not seem like an energetic material type of question, but if there are any I will disolve it is lard or tallow, add potassium chlorate and have me a new blue / green pyrotechnic star mix

Should organocopper compounds do the trick?

I have noticed that some old primary charges in detonators etc contain lead thiocyanate. I have made a little of this compound and it is not the least bit energetic so what is its purpose in these compositions? An exotic fuel?

From wikipedia

"Lead(II) thiocyanate is a compound, more precisely a salt, with the formula Pb(SCN)2.It is a white crystalline solid, but will turn yellow upon exposure to light. It has use in small explosives, matches, and dyeing. Like other metal cyanides, Lead thiocyanate explodes on heating when mixed with sodium nitrite. Lead thiocyanate is used in explosives, specifically an ingredient in primers for small-arms cartridges, safety matches, and to reverse aniline black dyeing (Gideon)."

I just found few AAAA Batteries from few 9v Batteries. I want to use their cases for caps, anyone have any idea how to remove everything and clean them inside ? It looks quite tricky.

What kind of 9V battery? Do the AAAA's have tabs welded together between them?

I have been reading about chlorate based explosives in Chemistry of Powder and Explosives by Tenney Davis. I noticed that sodium chlorate based compositions were said to be slower and less powerful than their potassium counterparts. That is inspite of sodium chlorate having similar heat of decomposition to potassium chlorate, and 11 or 12% more oxygen per unit mass.

Were the sodium chlorate mixtures damp, or is their some other factor I am not taking into account here?




Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Sometimes energetics materials behave strangely, despite assumptions based on their basic properties. Nothing humidity of NaClO3. Similarly as ice which is lighter than water. And only attempt and watching showes the truth...:cool:...LL
