Abstract : An explosive ternary nitrate mixture of ethylenediamine dinitrate, ammonium nitrate, and potassium is prepared by mixing together approximately stoichiometric amounts of aqueous nitric acid, ethylenediamine, ammonia, and potassium hydroxide at a temperature of less than about 130 C. The additions can be made simultaneously or sequentially in any order. (Author)
