Dear Perry:

What are the quantities of RDX and PETN he wants to play with?  What kind of chemistry will he be doi ng on the samples?  Any destructive testing?

A little more informatio n, please.

Have any of you been involved in research lab safety protocols for people working with urea nitrate, RDX, and PETN? I have a researcher who wants to expand his TNT (milligram quantities) work so they can test analytical samples of urea nitrate, RDX, and PETN.

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
