Be more specific, I do not understand what you mean with low density in this context.

It may mean the porous form used to absorb fuel as ANFO?

Molten NH4NO3 slightly above its decomposition point (care?) solidifies to the light, porous form!

energeticone, it's unlikely anyone will share their source for what amounts to "explosives grade" ammonium nitrate in response to that quality of posting (and minimal posting history). But, just so you don't go home empty-handed, here's some dubious and unreferenced information from Wikipedia:
Quote:
It was found by the IRA, in response to using low-brisance AN fertilizers, that "hot spots" can be created by blending powdered sugar into the ANFO mixture, effectively sensitizing the mixture to mining-standard prilled ammonium nitrate effectiveness in which the interaction of the detonation front with a spherical void concentrates energy. Blasting-grade AN prills are typically between 0.9 and 3.0 mm in diameter.

Have yout a federal high explosives license...



Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Easy enough to make some, I'm sure.

But, this ain't just a little dope, that yer askin' about.

It's in the explosives and poisons category, and I don't usually share that kinda stuff, with anonymous utopians.

Perhaps a humorous anecdote about your actual locale, would allay our suspicions?

Yeah, utopian....look it up.

Time passes. Zzzzzzzzz.

P.S. Utopia means, literally, "no place," since it was formed from the Greek ou, meaning "no, not," and topos, "place."

Make it with Oxygen-12 and Nitrogen-10 and it'll be low density. But the shelf-life would be just awful!
