    Abstract

    The E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., Inc. has recently announced that it is discontinuing the manufacturing of nitroglycerin-based dynamites and is replacing them with formulations whose primary ingredients are ammonium nitrate (AN) and monomethylamine nitrate (MMAN). The forensic chemist is thus confronted with the need to be able to analyze residues for the possible use of this type of explosive.
