The crystals formed in the above process would have to be heated VERY gently to drive off the remaining water. This section deals with "procuring" them. This can result in the production of highly flammable and toxic gasses that may explode. A rough estimate will be given of the percentages of each fuel and oxodizer: The Homesick Texan Cookbook. After writing the book as a teenager, Powell converted to Anglicanism in , and later attempted to have the book removed from circulation.
It is also difficult to detonate. If anyone asks what such a person is doing. If the door to a lab is locked. There are several devices which facilitate freeing the latch from its hole in the wall. If one just walks into a lab. The rule here is: The next best thing. There are unfortunately. This is advisable since the would-be thief should know when and if the campus security makes patrols through buildings.
There are. Of course. It is also a good idea to observe the building that one plans to rob at the time that one plans to rob it several days before the actual theft is done. One can usually find out where the various labs and departments in a building are by calling the university.
This should then be folded to produce an L. Cut off the ragged ends of the can. This is done by folding. The way that all these tools and devices are uses is similar: This should then be cut into inch wide strips.
The pieces would look like this: To make an aluminum-can lockpick. This should be folded into an L-shape. This is done by sliding whatever tool that you are using behind the latch. A would-be terrorist would merely need a station wagon and some money to acquire many of the chemicals named here.
The folds in the lockpicks will be between the door and the wall. Mercury thermometers are becoming a rarity. Mercury is a hazardous substance. Methyl alcohol is very poisonous. The pine and cloudy ammonias should not be bought. It gives off mercury vapors which will cause brain damage if inhaled. Methyl alcohol may prevent mercury fulminate from forming. They may be hard to find in most stores.
It is usually stolen by bomb makers. To obtain the pure form. For this reason. Once again. Mercury is also used in mercury switches. It is a good idea to set the above apparatus up. The liquid that forms is nitric acid. One method by which it could be made will be presented. This can result in the production of highly flammable and toxic gasses that may explode. Potassium nitrate could also be obtained from store-bought black powder. Heat until the precipitate in the bottom of the retort is almost dry.
Continue heating until liquid begins to come out of the end of the retort. If the acid is headed too strongly. If it all does not dissolve. To obtain 68 g of potassium nitrate. It must be kept in an airtight container. There would be a fine powder formed. A person wishing to make sulfuric acid would simply remove the top of a car battery and pour the acid into a glass container.
The crystals formed in the above process would have to be heated VERY gently to drive off the remaining water. There would probably be pieces of lead from the battery in the acid which would have to be removed. Filter the dissolved solution through filter paper in a funnel into a jar until the liquid that pours through is clear. It could be made very easily by pouring nitric acid into a large flask in an ice bath.
The charcoal and sulfur in black powder are insoluble in water. The concentration of the sulfuric acid can also be increased by boiling it. After the materials have stopped reacting. Some low order materials burn at about the same speed under pressure as they do in the open. This explains the mechanics behind an explosion. These recipes are theoretically correct. In a high explosive. Detonations are usually incurred by a shockwave that passes through a block of the high explosive material.
Low order explosives do not detonate. Explosives occur in several forms: This process releases energy that is stored in the material in the form of heat and light. This expansion occurs at a speed greater than the speed of sound. High order explosives detonate. A detonation occurs only in a high order explosive. The methods here are usually scaled-down industrial procedures.
The shockwave breaks apart the molecular bonds between the atoms of the substance. Because this expansion is very rapid. Still others merely burn. Primers are peculiarities to the explosive field. Some of them. Such crystals are said to detonate when a fly lands on them. Of the ones discussed here. Ammonium triiodide crystals decompose upon impact. Impact explosives are always treated with the greatest care. Most primers perform like a high order explosive.
Primers are usually used in a small amount to initiate. Household ammonia. They are usually more sensitive to friction. Whatever the unfortunate surface that the crystal was detonated upon will usually be ruined. Iodine gas is also bad news. Ammonium triiodide crystals could be produced in the following manner: It leaves nasty. Touching iodine leaves brown stains on the skin that last for about a week.
The technique for putting every basic chemistry lab class: Pull one thickness cone into the funnel. The 2 Add enough ammonia to completely cover the iodine. Upon detonation. While such a compound would have little use to a serious terrorist.
They have a shelf life of about a week. Make sure that they are not too close to any lights or other sources of heat. Even the action of dropping a crystal of the fulminate causes it to explode.
To use them. A person making this material would probably use the following procedure: While they are still wet. It can be detonated by either heat or shock. One possible way to increase their shelf life is to store them in airtight containers. Cover it with a similar piece. These fumes are toxic and flammable. After ten more minutes. This procedure can also be done by volume. Simply use 10 volumes of nitric acid and 10 volumes of ethanol to every one volume of mercury.
This will be when the litmus paper stays blue when it touches the wet crystals 7 Allow the crystals to dry. Test the crystals with the litmus paper until they are neutral.
Dispose of the solution in a safe place. Many a young anarchist has been killed or seriously injured while trying to make the stuff. Be sure that the beaker will not spill into the ice bath. Although it is possible to make it safely. This will cause the ice to melt. Bring the temperature of the acid down to about 20 degrees centigrade or less.
Do not put so much sodium bicarbonate in the water so that some remains undissolved. When Nobel's factories make it. Nitroglycerine is one of the most sensitive explosives. An idiot who attempts to make nitroglycerine would use the following procedure: Be sure to have a large enough ice bath container to add more ice.
Hold the thermometer along the top of the mixture where the mixed acids and glycerine meet. Test the nitroglycerine with the litmus paper until the litmus stays blue.
It is a good idea to start another ice bath to do this. Mix the two acids together. Repeat this step if necessary.
The nitroglycerine should settle to the bottom of the beaker. The glycerine will start to nitrate immediately. Add glycerine until there is a thin layer of glycerine on top of the mixed acids. Drain as much of the acid-water solution as possible without disturbing the nitroglycerine.
The sodium bicarbonate solution will eliminate much of the acid. It is always safest to make any explosive in small quantities.
This is very bad. Simply obtain picric acid. By mixing picric acid with metal hydroxides. It is very simple to make. Nitroglycerine can explode for no apparent reason. Black powder has one major problem: The best place to store nitroglycerine is far away from anything living. Such an individual would then be forced to resort to making his own loworder explosives. Never store black powder in a plastic bag.
Plastic is really the safest container. Do this until there is no more visible sulfur or charcoal. Sunlight is really the best way to dry black powder. Do this to all of the potassium or sodium nitrate. Some are very effective and dangerous. Add to 2 Immediately add 0. It also burns much faster than black powder when it is in a confined space. A rough estimate will be given of the percentages of each fuel and oxodizer: A list of working fuel-oxodizer mixtures will be presented. By altering the amounts of fuel and oxodizer s.
When a shock wave passes through an molecule of T. As one can easily see. Mixtures that uses substitutions of sodium perchlorate for potassium perchlorate become moisture-absorbent and less stable. Most high explosives detonate because their molecular structure is made up of some fuel and usually three or more NO2 nitrogen dioxide molecules. The main problem is acquiring the nitric acid to produce the high explosive.
Solutions of sodium or potassium hydroxide are ideal. The higher the speed number. It is a good idea to test the material to be perchlorated with a very small amount of acid.. Some materials that can be perchlorated are cotton. To produce potassium or sodium perchlorate. It is much easier to make in the home than all other high explosives. This accounts for the great power of nitrogen-based explosives. It should not be used alone. It is less sensitive than mercury fulminate.
The temperature will rise. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the litmus paper remains blue. Once it has melted. This will make the crystals more stable and safe. Shake and stir the mixture. Filter the crystals. Kneed these material together in a plastic bag.. Soduim or potassium nitrate could also be added. Allow them to dry completely using them.
Continue stirring the mixture. This is a good way to desensitize the explosive. Stir the mixture. A terrorist could also buy several Instant ColdPaks from a drug store or medical supply store. The kerosene keeps the ammonium nitrate from absorbing moisture from the air.
A rather powerful priming charge must be used. Fuel Oil Solution. This results in the explosive failing to detonate when such an attempt is made. It is certainly the best known. The diagram below will explain. An ANFO also requires a large shockwave to set it off. An ANFO solves the only other major problem with ammonium nitrate: The major disadvantage with ammonium nitrate.
Cold water is added the solution. It is the standard for comparing other explosives to. It must. If potassium chlorate is mixed with a small amount of vaseline. A terrorist. The finer that it is powdered. The one step process is performed by treating toluene with very strong fuming sulfuric acid. The procedure for making such an explosive is outlined below: In industry.
Put the petroleum jelly into the plastic bag. Other materials. Dynamite was invented by Nobel shortly after he made nitroglycerine.
A misguided individual with some sanity would. Cold water is added. This reaction. But even these nitroglycerine compounds are not really safe. This can be done by adding various materials to the nitroglycerine.
To this mixture is added 0. All that need be done is treat various starches with a mixture of concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids. If 4 The material must me used within 24 hours. It was made because nitroglycerine was so dangerously sensitive to shock. Nitrostarch explosives are of slightly lower power than T. The sawdust holds a large weight of nitroglycerine per volume.
Its procedure for manufacture is given in many college chemistry lab manuals. After thirty minutes. It another explosive that is fairly simple to make. A social deviant would probably use a formula similar to the one presented here to make picric acid.
The main problem with picric acid is its tendency to form dangerously sensitive and unstable picrate salts. Place the ml flask with the mixed acid an phenol in the ice. It is simple to make from picric acid and clear household ammonia.
It is much safer than picric acid. It requires a substantial shock to cause it to detonate. Place the flask containing the mixture in the boiling water.
Collect the liquid and dispose of it in a safe place. A vigorous but "harmless" reaction should occur. The powder remaining should be ammonium picrate. Add 38 ml of concentrated nitric acid in small amounts. Add ml of water. Add clear household ammonia in excess. All that need be done is put the picric acid crystals into a glass container and dissolve them in a great quantity of hot water.
When the mixture stops reacting vigorously. Gently heat the bottom beaker. The chlorine gas can also be mixed with anhydrous ammonia gas. It is fairly simple to produce.
At this time. Place the glass tubes from the chlorine-generating flask and the tube from the ammoniagenerating flask in another flask that contains water. It explodes violently when it is heated above 60 degrees celsius. Do not put so much ammonium nitrate into the solution that some of it remains undissolved in the bottom of the beaker. It is difficult to ignite. By dissolving sodium azide and lead acetate in water in separate beakers.
Filter off the solution. If lead acetate cannot be found. Mix the two beakers together. Although none of the materials presented here are explosives.
It does not detonate too easily by percussion or impact. It is simple to produce. Add an excess of the lead acetate solution.
When it is ignited.
Black powder bullets work well for this purpose. This is half the heat produced by an atomic weapon. The precipitate is lead azide. This is really two very exothermic reactions that produce a combined temperature of about degrees C. It was not presented in section 3. It is a mixture of iron oxide and aluminum. By taking any highly flammable material. Flammable mixtures such as kerosene and motor oil should be mixed with a more volatile and flammable liquid.
They are extremely simple to make. Simply mix the two powders together. After putting the flammable liquid in the bottle. A mixture such as this. If the burning cloth does not go out.
The other method of igniting thermit is with a magnesium strip. A mixture such as tar or grease and gasoline will stick to the surface that it strikes. Light the exposed cloth. This method and others will be discussed later in section 4.
A glass top is excellent. The paper. If the acid eats through it in 24 hours. Rather than using the burning cloth to ignite the flammable liquid. Wipe up any spills of acid on the sides of the bottle. When the container breaks. Wrap the paper towel around the bottle. Wash the bottle's outside with plenty of water. Set it 4 Put about two teaspoons of potassium chlorate and about two teaspoons of sugar into the glass or plastic cup. Fold the paper towel in half.
To use the chemical fire bottle. Allow the towel to dry. Store the bottle in a place where it will not be broken or tipped over. The two solutions will not mix. To make such a device. The paper towel should immediately burst into a white flame. Explosives have a wide range of uses.
These are some of the topics covered in the next section. Nitrous oxide. The first step that a person that would use explosive would take would be to determine how big an explosive device would be needed to do whatever had to be done. Placing the canister of bottled gas on a bed of burning charcoal soaked in gasoline would probably be the most effective way of securing ignition of the expanding gas.
In theory. He would also have to decide on how he wanted to detonate the device. Depending on the fuel used. By using a metal bucket half filled with gasoline. There is no such thing as a "safe" explosive device. There are many ways to ignite explosive devices. There is the classic 'light the fuse, throw the bomb, and run' approach, and there are sensitive mercury switches, and many things in between. Generally, electrical detonation systems are safer than fuses, but there are times when fuses are more appropriate than electrical systems; it is difficult to carry an electrical detonation system into a stadium, for instance, without being caught.
A device with a fuse or impact detonating fuse would be easier to hide. The oldest form of explosive ignition, fuses are perhaps the favorite type of simple ignition system. By simply placing a piece of waterproof fuse in a device, one can have almost guaranteed ignition.
Modern waterproof fuse is extremely reliable, burning at a rate of about 2. Fuse is a popular ignition system for pipe bombers because of its simplicity. All that need be done is light it with a match or lighter. Of course, if the Army had fuses like this, then the grenade, which uses fuse ignition, would be very impracticle.
If a grenade ignition system can be acquired, by all means, it is the most effective. But, since such things do not just float around, the next best thing is to prepare a fuse system which does not require the use of a match or lighter, but still retains its simplicity.
One such method is described below: With a stopwatch, press the start button the at the instant when the fuse lights, and stop the watch when the fuse reaches its end.
Divide the time of burn by the length of fuse, and you have the burn rate of the fuse, in seconds per inch. This will be shown below: Suppose an eight inch piece of fuse is burned, and its complete time of combustion is 20 seconds. If a delay of 10 seconds was desired with this fuse, divide the desired time by the number of seconds per inch: Do not pull off individual matches; keep all the matches attached to the cardboard base.
Take one of the cardboard match sections, and leave the other one to make a second igniter. Tape them there securely, making sure not. Make sure they are very secure by pulling on them at the base of the assembly. They should not be able to move.
Tape the paper so that is fairly tight around the matches. Do not tape the cover of the striker to the fuse or to the matches. Leave enough of the match book to pull on for ignition. The matches are taped to the fuse. The striker will rub against the matcheads when the match book is pulled. It should pull the striking paper across the match heads with enough friction to light them.
In turn, the burning matcheads will light the fuse, since it adjacent to the burning match heads. The problem with an impact-detonating device is that it must be kept in a very safe container so that it will not explode while being transported to the place where it is to be used.
A cutaway of a nipple is shown below: All that a person has to do is ask for a package of nipples and the caps that fit them.
Nipples have a hole that goes all the way through them. Black powder nipples are also available in gun stores. They usually come in boxes of The nipple is then screwed into the hole so that it fits tightly. The best and most reliable impact initiator is one that uses factory made initiators or primers. The cap should be bent a small amount before it is placed on the nipple.
To use such a cap. This can be done by having a removable impact initiator. Military squibs are difficult to get. With an electrical system. The two best electrical igniters are military squibs and model rocketry igniters. Blasting caps for construction also work well. Igniters can be used to set off black powder. By attaching fins or a small parachute on the end of the bomb opposite the primer. Model rocketry igniters are sold in packages of six.
Detonation can be aborted in less than a second's warning. Electrical systems are ideal for demolition work. Military squibs can be used to set off sensitive high explosives. All that need be done to use them is connect it to two wires and run a current through them.
With two spools of ft of wire and a car battery.
This type of switch is typically used in booby traps or other devices in which the person who places the bomb does not wish to be anywhere near the device when it explodes.
A typical mercury switch is a sealed glass tube with two electrodes and a bead of mercury metal.
If this particular switch was in its present position. It is sealed because of mercury's nasty habit of giving off brain-damaging vapors. Electro-mechanical ignition systems are systems that use some type of mechanical switch to set off an explosive charge electrically. The diagram below may help to explain a mercury switch.
Several types of electro-mechanical detonators will be discussed 4. Current would flow between the contacts to the igniter or squib. When the tripwire was pulled. By wrapping the tips of a standard clothespin with aluminum foil. The technique is simple. If this mode of thought is applied to explosives. If a piece of wood attached to the tripwire was placed between the contacts on the clothespin. If it were placed in the path of a swinging door in the verticle position.
This type of switch is ideal to place by a door. Imagine opening a door and having it slammed in your face by an explosion. By placing a nearly invisible line of string or fishing line in the probable path of a victim. This would tilt the switch into the verticle position. The problem with radio detonators is that they are rather costly. With a good radio detonator. An average. Perhaps the simplest way to do so is with a cigarette. A regular fuse is a delay. If such an individual wanted to devise an RC detonator.
The device should be tested several times with squibs or igniters. This section deals with the different types of delays that can be employed by a terrorist who wishes to be sure that his bomb will go off. Punch a hole in it at the desired location. Simply roll the sheet of paper into a thin tube. Depending on the wind or draft in a given place. The higher the "tar" and nicotine rating. Both ends must be glued closed. A chain of. People who use cigarettes for the purpose of delaying fuses will often test the cigarettes that they plan to use in advance to make sure they stay lit.
Low "tar" and nicotine cigarettes burn quicker than the higher "tar" and nicotine cigarettes. Once a cigarettes burn rate is determined. Such a device could be placed in any populated place if it were concealed properly. The wet toilet paper is then gently twisted up so that it resembles a firecracker fuse. After the soaked string dries. The minute hand of a clock should be removed. By simply using a screw as one contact at the time that detonation is desired.
A similar type of slow fuse can be made by taking the above mixture of boiling water and black powder and pouring it on a long piece of toilet paper.
By wrapping the fuse about the end of an incense stick. There are several ways to build a timer delay. All that one has to do is set the alarm time of the clock to the desired time.. This could also be done with an electronic watch The leads from the timer to the recording equipment would be the ones that an igniter or squib would be connected to The main disadvantage with this type of timer is that it can only be set for a maximum time of 12 hours To utilize this type of timer.
When the hour hand of the clock reaches the contact near the numeral By removing the speaker from an electronic clock.. If an electronic timer is used.. VCR's can usually be set for times of up to a week. This would be good If the acid that eats through the foil is collected in a glass container placed underneath the foil.
This flame can be used to ignite a fuse. If the acid drips down into a container containing potassium chlorate. When the acid eats through the aluminum foil. If a glass container is filled with concentrated sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid will react with aluminum foil to produce aluminum sulfate and hydrogen gas. The process of their manufacture is not unlike that of making a paper football.
It is called a "paloma". Paper containers are usually very simple to make. There are many possible uses for paper in containing explosives.
The firecracker shown here is one of Mexican design. Simply by rolling up a long sheet of paper. If one takes a sheet of paper about 16 inches in length by 1.
Perhaps a more interesting and dangerous use is in the firecracker. This pocket can be filled with black powder. When the paloma is finished. They pound one end of a pipe closed with a hammer. A pocket is formed. A fuse is then inserted. He would then screw the cap with the fuse in it on tightly. He would buy two pipe caps and threaded pipe fig. The Geezer Cookbook.
