Abstract : The purpose of this report is to summarize the currently available information on (1) quadrupole resonance (QR) characteristics of explosive materials and their accessibility to QR detection, and (2) the potential of detecting explosives in explosive mixtures by using the quadrupole resonance signals of other materials commonly found as additives, such as plasticizers, binders and stabilizers.
