DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!

I demonstrate an unusual liquid explosive that’s very powerful, yet simple and useful for a broad range of applications.

To see the explosions, skip to 24:37

He points to Hydrogen detonation and says we’re going to have lots of fun I like this guy may be a little too much

Seen one ☝️ of your videos by chance and had to check out your videos. Yep 👍 the first one ☝️ I got to see is the don’t try this at home. You know the lockdown and everything

I have a question for you and don’t know where to look to get an answer. I’ve played with flash powder. And what to know how stable it is for long term storage. How safe is it or dangerous. My powders are stored separately except in the crackers I’ve made. They are mixed at a 70/30 mixture. Potassium perchlorate and aluminum powders at 3 to 5 micron. Mixed with sorbitol for clump prevention. I have a like a hundred of fused ready made crackers ready to go. How stable are they for long term storage. Are they susceptible to shock etc?

When are you going to blow it up?

I am waiting for the one where you ignite metal with a capacitor bank. While you are busy blowing shit up would you mind detonating some ferrocerium metal and see if it makes for nice sparks. Perhaps you have more energetic things in mind. It is something I want to try out. Thanks for all the exciting science. Be safe always.

I knew a young man, who got arrested and sent to prison because he had a 'anarchist cookbook' and the household items that were in the book. Aren't you worried about the legality of making and having high explosives?

What happens if you mix nitromethane and nitro-glycerin together, or Hi-wax fuel oil and ammonium nitrate and 400 grit aluminum powder

Waiting eagerly for the big boom. =) Also, I'm curious as to our host's background. Any chance of getting some basic info or a bio? Who is he?

I’d also like to add that this is currently my favorite channel on YouTube. I really appreciate the effort that’s gone into these videos, and I hope the platform treats you well and ensures you continued success.

Looks like "tri-iodide" types. Made this with my father (who was a PhD chemist and geneticist). We had to use a ice bath to control the temperature precisely. I remember my father telling me if the temperature went outside the limits to run! Hahaha!

Together with so many others watching your videos, I am immensely impressed with the breadth and depth of knowledge you have at your command. However – contrary to appearances – I am sure that you don't quite know EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING. I'm also pretty sure that at your age you have not had time to pursue professional careers in chemistry, physics, distilling, optics, eletronics, acoustics, jet engines and so on, and so on.

Without wanting to seem nosy and intrusive, I and your other viewers (I know I can speak for them) would be MOST curious to know how you have managed to become so knowledgeable in so many fields. Intelligence alone cannot explain it, although clearly it's there in abundance, because there have been many other very clever people who have never done what you have.

Would it be impertinent of me to ask about your path in life? I'm not asking you to answer this in a comment, of course, but it would make an extraordinarily interesting video or two if you could overcome your evident modesty and give your many fans an insight into your background and research methods. Also, an introduction to your family would be interesting, as they are the people who must put up with your idiosyncratic interests and pursuits, and must therefore deserve some of the credit. It would also be interesting to hear of some of the projects you've undertaken which perhaps did not work out quite as well as hoped.

Is there any chance you could be persuaded to do something like that in future episodes?
I'm certain that every one of your fans would second me in this motion.

In the wake of the Beirut explosion, I’ve learned a lot of details about AN explosions over time, in particular, the Texas City incident happened, due to a fire breaking out among bags of fertilizer AN, it was certainly very slow to develop into a detonation, in that the fire was discovered, attempts were made to put it out, and even the city’s volunteer fire department had arrived on seen and was attempting to put it out. Which is pretty similar to the Beirut incident, where a long standing fire kept burning until there was a AN-only detonation.

So, I’m just kind of curious, it seems AN can detonate on its own without being sensitized, but what kind of heat are we looking at there? Does part of the AN also ignite and contribute to the heat build up before the detonation, or is it safe to assume that the heat has to build up from other things burning?

In particular, the Texas City incident was from a fire contained in a ship (well, two ships, and two different detonations) that lead to a lot of heat retention, leading to the fertilizer AN detonation, and in Beirut, it seems like fireworks were in part involved.

In the other biggest AN disaster, in Oppau Germany, they were actually using TNT to break up plasters developed by AN + Ammonium Sulfate. It appears that they had been under the impression that anything <60% of AN in an AN+AS mix was safe, but later tests showed that between 55–60% it grew drastically less safe, and could cause a detonation of other AN+AS even with a significantly lower AN percentage. So, generally overall, this was not just “AN got hot enough to detonate in a fire” situation.

I'm not worried. If he were going to hurt himself, he would first explain how the injury would unfold before demonstrating it so that we all know the science behind losing a finger 🙂
