Synthesis Written In Red Means It Is Highly Advised NOT To Make This. For Informational Use Only.
Synthesis Written In Orange Means It Is Unsafe to Make But Not Extremely Dangerous. Unadvised To Make Or Store.
Synthesis Written In White Means It Is Relatively Safe To Make And Store But Still Unadvised.

Acetone Peroxide:

-Ethyl Ether
-30% Hydrogen Peroxide
-75% Sulphuric Acid
-Distilled Water

Place a 500Ml beaker in an ice bath and add 50 mL acetone and 30 mL H2O2. Cool to 5*C. Then slowly add 3mL of H2SO4. Stir for 5 minutes after you finish adding the H2SO4. Let the mixture sit in the ice bath for 1-5 hours. Filter the white precipitate out and wash the crystals with water. Dissolve in Ethyl Ether and wash by shaking with 3 portions of water. Evaporate the ethyl ether and let dry. Keep in cool, dark, place. The freezer is ideal for storage.

Sensitivity: VERY High
Boiling Point: Explodes Before That Point
Melting Point: 91*C
Explosive Velocity: 5'300m/sec.
Chemical Formula: C9H18O6

Black Powder:

-Potassium Nitrate (KNO3)

Add 75 grams Potassium Nitrate, 15 grams Sulphur, and 10 grams Charcoal into a ball mill. Mill for 24 hours. If it's to coarse, just keep milling it until it's fine enough for you.

*Crush the charcoal into a powder using a mortar and pestle before milling. Will greatly decrease your milling time.
**The longer you mill you BP, the more potent it will be.
***You may substitute KClO4 or KClO3 for KNO3. DO NOT mill the KClO3 with the C+S. Very sensitive and very strong if made with KClO3.

Flash Powder

-Potassium Perchlorate (KClO4)
-Aluminum (Al)

Add 7 grams Potassium Perchlorate, and 3 grams (powdered) Aluminum to a plastic container. Shake/mix well. Store in cool place.

HMTD (hexamethylenetriperoxidediamine):

-6% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
-Methyl/Ethyl Alcohol
-Citric Acid

Place a large beaker in an ice bath and dissolve 2 1/2 tsp. hexamine in 9 tsp. of Hydrogen Peroxide. Let sit for 30-40 minutes. slowly add 4 1/2 tsp. of powdered citric acid. Stir for 30 minutes and let sit for 24 hours. Filter the crystals that will have formed. Wash with water, and then with methyl/ethyl alcohol. Store MOIST.

Sensitivity: VERY High
Boiling Point: ?
Melting Point: Decompose at 75*C
Explosive Velocity: 4511m/s
Chemical Formula: N(CH2-O-O-CH2)3N

Nitrogen Trichloride

-Ammonium Nitrate (NH4NO3)
-Chlorine (Cl)
-Water (H20(HOH))

In a 200mL flask, take 30g Ammonium Nitrate and add it to 70mL of Water. Use a Chlorine bubbler and bubble the chlorine gas through the Ammonium Nitrate/Water solution. Gently heat the flask while bubbling the gas through. Stop heating when a yellowy oil apperas at the bottom of the flask. That is your Nitrogen Trichloride. The reaction shuold finish in about 30 minutes. Use a syringe to extract the nitrogen tiochloride from the flask.

Sensitivity: VERY High
Boiling Point: 71*C
Melting Point: -27*C
Explosive Velocity: ?
Chemical Formula: NCl3

Nitrogen Triiodide:

-Ammonium Hydroxide (NH4OH)
-Iodine (I)

Take a disposable cup (or 50mL beaker, may permanently stain so use the cup), and add 2 grams of Iodine crystals. Crush them as finely as possible. Continue by adding 40mL of Ammonium Hydroxide. Let the solution sit for 2 hours, then filter out the crystals.

**Can be set off with the touch of a feather!

Sensitivity: VERY High
Boiling Point: ?
Melting Point: ?
Explosive Velocity: ?
Chemical Formula: NI3


-Chloroform (CHCl3)
-Glycerol (C3H8O3)
-Nitric Acid (HNO3)
-Sodium Carbonate (NaCO3)
-Sodium Chloride (NaCl)
-Sulphuric Acid (H2SO4)
-Water (H20(HOH))

Procedure: Mix, in a 1000mL beaker, 200mL 98-100% Nitric Acid, and 300mL 98-100% Sulphuric Acid. Put in an ice bath and cool to <10*C. In a new ice bath, add 115mL glycerol crop by drop. Make sure that glycerol had been chilled to 15*C previously. Allow the acid and glycerol to cool to 15*C and sit for 15 minutes. Dump this into an equal volume of water. Pour this into a seperatory funnel. The nitroglycerin will have formed a layer on the bottom of the funnel. Drain this off and put into a clean seperatory funnel, add lots of 38-40*C water, mix and serperate again. Wash with 4% Sodium Carbonate solution and separate. Wash with water 3 more times, then a final wash with Sodium Chloride. Let the Sodium Chloride/Nitroglycerin solution sit for 24hrs before separating. Check the acidity level with litmus paper. If it is still even slightly acidic, wash it until it is neutral. Dry the Nitroglycerin in a disiccator over Sulphuric Acid. May take a few days.

**Store Cool. Refrigerator would be the best place.
**can be destroyed by boiling with sodium or potassium and ethyl alcohol.

Sensitivity: VERY High
Boiling Point: Decompose at 50-60*C
Melting Point: 13.5*C
Explosive Velocity: 7700m/s
Chemical Formula: C3H5N3O9

PETN (pentaerythritol tetranitrate)

-Acetone (CH3COCH3)
-Nitric Acid (HNO3)
-Pentaerythritol (C5H12O4)
-Sodium Carbonate (NaCO3)
-Water (H20(HOH))

Add 400mL of White Nitric Acid to a 600mL beaker and cool to below 5*C in an ice bath. Slowly add 100g, finely powdered, pentaerythritol to the beaker while strring. Continue stirring for 15 minutes afterwards, then dump into 3L of ice water. Filter the product that should have formed and soak in 1L of hot Sodium Carbonate for 1 hour. Filter the crystals out of the Sodium Carbonate, and dissolve in hot acetone. Filter the crystals and let dry for at least 24 hours.
Sensitivity: Medium
Melting Point: 141*C
Boiling Point: Ignite at 210*C
Explosive Velocity: 8300M/s
Chemical Formula: C5H8N4O12


-Iron (III) Oxide (Fe2O3)
-Aluminum (Al)

Take 8 grams (powdered)Fe2O3 and 2 grams Al (powdered) and mix thoroughly.

**Takes ALOT of heat to ignite thermite. A strip of Mg ribbon should do it though.
