A screw swage forces the two halves together with the explosive compound
in the center core, and sizes it to the correct groove diameter.
Dabrowski also acknowledged the "dual-use" of Crispr, and gave the examples - ammonium nitrate, used in fertilizers for the agriculture industry but also a highly explosive compound
; chlorine, used in swimming pools for sterilization but lethal in some forms; and automobiles, which we all use regularly but was used to carry out a terror attack in France - of various other such common things that exist around us to stress accessibility.
Barrett's descriptions of how programming works at the cyber level are compelling and clear, detailed enough to create tension but not overly technical -- as with the Collar, a neotech torture device, "a ring of prongs capable of delivering an electric shock to the host [with] an explosive compound
Although the binary chemicals are benign prior to being mixed, the final product is an explosive compound
that rivals some military explosives.
These bombs contain roughly 550 pounds of a high explosive compound
known as tritonal, and thanks to tail fuse delays, the bomb's detonation is stalled until it reaches its intended underground target.
George Peterson, R-Grafton, would exclude from the definition of fireworks devices paper or plastic caps containing "twenty-five hundredths grains or less of explosive compound
,'' sparklers with not more than 100 grams of pyrotechnic mixture, and items such as "snake and glow worms, smoke devices, or trick noisemakers.''
"We have demonstrated direct, real-time vapor detection for the low-volatility explosive compound
RDX, which is used in many types of explosives," David Atkinson, senior research scientist at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory said.
The bomb also contained lead azide, an explosive compound
which can be used in detonators.
Precursors are chemical compounds, or elements, that can be converted into an explosive compound
through a chemical reaction.
In the case of explosives detection, each known explosive compound
has a signature spectrum of ion drift times, and therefore ion mobility values.
RDX -- an explosive compound
, ammonium nitrate and fuel oil were explosives used in the deadly blasts in India's financial hub of Mumbai, according to forensic reports.
In addition to lead and a variety of solvents, training facilities release munitions constituents including perchlorate (a thyroid toxicant), RDX (an explosive compound
and neurotoxicant), and TNT (an explosive compound
linked to anemia and altered liver function).
