    I'm working on a little project, and long story short I need some explosives. What is the commonly used, easily accessible formula. I've been thinking ammonium nitrate with diesel.

    And no worries this will in no way be used against another person. I'm blowing up a guitar.

    It's not good idea... That mixture is really dangerous. It seems to me that terrorists use it in their attacks. Also look here:

    Well I can't get my hands on TNT and your probably right with ammonium nitrate being to dangerous.

    Any other ideas?

    H2O, ballons, electricity
    electrolyse
    you get H2 and O2 in the exact right propitions and then you connect this 2 ballons somehow just light it and BAAM so long you or who ever you blows

    Have you ever tried to do it yourself? In small scale and when you don't use hydrogen and oxygen in the ratio of 2:1 - it can be quite safe experiment.

    But if you like your fingers, hands and eyes and if you don't want to lose them - you shouldn't do it.

    Of course if you have some experience in chemistry you can try...

    That is controlled combustion of mixture hydrogen and oxygen. Look nice (And it sounded very very nice )

    i read that quick and i thought ... you were talkng bout playing guitar!

    why would you want to blow up a guitar. sell it, cheap to some eager learner! or better still give it away now, to someone who wants to learn! not blow it up! :P

    both bitter, then it was a good idea.

    well i suppose we cannot question blowing up a personal item. wouldnt he regret it if in 20 years time he remebers the good times?

    well i wouldnt know what to use, you could try a different apporach. grind the guitar into tiny dust and then ignite. lol more work, but slighly safer. lol

    Well, you better be pretty damn careful with the fertalizer/diesal crap. It can pack a punch and maybe take off some fingers (although, what explosives can't?) I would suggest black powder. Or, if your feeling ambitious, you could try homemade napalm (It's basically gasoline and styrofoam). But really, if it's any good, I would sugest selling the guitar, and buying some actions figures or something to explode.

    i think gas and a match should do the work well, it won't be as exciting but still pretty cool. Put the gas inside the guitar and light it from the inside then see how long you can play it without burning your hands

    Ammonium Nitrate 14.0 grams

    Ammonium Chloride 1.5 grams

    Zinc Dust 34.5 grams

    Add one drop of water to this mixture, and your guitar will be toast. You cannot store this though. Since it is water sensitive, if you store it, water will come in the container and of course.... blow it up. This stuff is dangerous, but when used in good hands it can be fun.

    Oxidize potassium chloride (usually with a bleach/oxidizer). You get potassium chlorate, which is was used in land mines. I'm not going to give you an indepth guide or link. This stuff is pretty dangerous and illegal.

    Hey, new guy here.

    how old are u?? the guy who wants to blow his bro's guitar.
    If u r old enough to get excess to a decent lab, u might be able to manufacture explosives easily.
    That day. i tried and succesfully made some nitrogen triiodide by mixing products from simple chemical tests. and i did it under the view of 30+ other of my classmates n my teacher.
    But be careful, i thought the nitrofen triiodide made this way was less sensitive and explosive due to many impurities, but i was hell wrong.... but nothing happend to me... i'm still in 1 piece. jus wanna warn u before u start making dangerous explosives every chemistry lab period.

    I'm just saying that you can make this stuff fairly easily and out of cheap items.

    You could also make RDX (Mucha illegal), by direct nitration of hexamine.

    Alot of the explosion also depends on what you set it off with.

    e.g. If you light C4 with a match, you can conduct some cooking with it.

    Go Pottassium anyone?

    And if you can't get that sodium would be good enough. Also hydrogen ballons are pretty safe, you just make a long fuse (with tissues stapled around a round up paper).

    It really depends on your budget and how far you really want to go with this.
    Also i think it is a bad idea to blow up your brother's guitar, when i blow things up i make sure i do it in a safe environment and have water and everything nearby because it can be very dangerous. If your explosive is too small, it won't do anything. Too big and you will most probably find a splinter of guitar stuck in you.

    ummm...Pottassium and Sodium to blow something up? That wouldnt work and it would be a waste of money trying.

    I would use this formula = Aluminum - 5 , Sulfer - 2, and Pottassium Permanganate - 3. Then for the fuse make a high concentrate solution of pottssium nitrate, dip a strip of paper into the solution and let dry. Pack the first mixture into a paper or cardboard tube, then seal the ends and put the paper of the pottassium nitrate solution (fuse) into one end.

    Too late William, you'd best either climb down the fire escape or shout "There's no WMD in my neighbour's garage honestly!" which will divert them long enough for you to escape.

    Get HCL, and magnesium, put the magnesium and the HCL in a test tube, connect it using a rubber tube and get hydrogen by water deplacement. Hydrogen = Explosive + SOUND!

    Sory, what will it give once it is at -200c?
    Ohhh I think i get it!
    Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
    Hydrogen (H2)
    Methane (CH4)
    Nitrous Oxide (N2O)

    Hehe... Well, to do that he could use liquid nitrogen to cool it off to -150c, then he'd have to put some ice arround it, then he could shoot a laser at it and... BANG!


    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I am right.

    Would it be sufficient though? I mean, wouldn't you need HUGE amounts of water to make a mililiter of hydrogen?

    mechanicly seperate the liquide nitrogen and water earlier in the cooling cool further mechanicly compress it cool further and then at - 200 zap the liquid oxygen with a laser

    concentrate it yourself dya way., you would have to seperate your tuloene also but the fact of the matter is it's easier than concentrating it from stuff found at the grocery store and nobody asks you what your using it for.

    Not really explosive but me and my son were having fun in the garden with glycerine and potassium premanganate the other day.

    Readily available from the chemists.

    If you mix them and warm it suddenly bursts into a bright flame.

    The easiest and safest explosive around.....make thermite (easy), put pounder in rectangular paper packet, rap around AXE can (the deoderant), put fuse in, and run. BIG explosion.
