Funny thing in Mellor

In the supplement on the halogens, apparently TNT is soluble in chlorine trifluoride.

No joke!!

F. de Lalande and M. Prud'homme showed that a mixture of boric oxide and sodium chloride is decomposed in a stream of dry air or oxygen at a red heat with the evolution of chlorine.

Soluble is funny, miscible would be hilarious.

Shamelessly plugging my attempts at writing fiction:

Interaction with water is violent and may be explosive, even with ice [Sidgwick, 1950, p. 1156]. It undergoes an immediate explosive reaction on contact with hydrocarbons or halocarbons even at -70° C [Brower, K. R., J. Fluorine Chem., 1986, 31, p. 333]. Solutions with carbon tetrachloride are capable of detonation, while solutions with nitroaryl compounds (TNT, hexanitrobiphenyl) or highly chlorinated compounds are extremely shock-sensitive

"Really? What do I need?"
"Your last will and testament, and probably some life insurance."
"This is the worst unpaid internship ever!"
