Subject: Re: urea nitrate, RDX, and PETN
There is a helpful article in the current issue of the Journal
of Chemical Health and Safety,( Nov/Dec 2009,vol 16, no. 6, page 24.
It was even highlighted on the cover with a photo. ) The article addressed
many safety concerns for working with such compounds. You may not
need to go to the extreme measures described in the article but there are
many simple measures that can be taken to improve the safety of the
researchers and others in the vicinity.
I hope it helps,

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!
