I don’t have specific information, but expect that the military has many such protocols.

You might start with Aberdeen Proving Ground in MD:

Another contact would be Sandia National Laboratory:

I'd be very careful with these compounds.  There may be places wh ere they can be safely tested.  Our colleagues perhaps in Arkans as or in New Mexico or perhaps in Utah might have some ideas?  An unfortunate RDX issue comes to mind, but it was solved clinically.

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


Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
