I'd be very careful with these compounds.  There may be place s where they can be safely tested.  Our colleagues perhaps in  Arkansas or in New Mexico or perhaps in Utah might ha ve some ideas?  An unfortunate RDX issue comes to mind, but it was solved clinically.

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


Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciate d!
