Extremely powerful plausible compound?


Why don't they just make the gas compound Lead Tri-Methane and be done with it?

I promise you it goes pop with a decent cap.

Please inform me if I'm talking out my ass.
Lead Tri-Methane on combustion of one of the Methane groups will contribute a slight energy needed for the next initiation, increasing the detonation speed in result; still having one of the Methane groups the Lead-Methane remains at gas state and has the energy disposed to be such, meaning it is far closer to qualification of combustion.

I thought you might like a second opinion.

There is a compound called tetramethyl lead.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetramethyllead

Is that what you meant?

It's not explosive.

I definitely meant Methane, I'm going to bet that this only needs roughly a few hundred degree pressure wave to get going, no more than four max.

Might as well kill this thread, it's clearly not going anywhere.

But reading it made my day, though. That counts for something. Thanks. Oh, and welcome to the forum.
