    Abstract

    Reagents containing sulfuric acid commonly used in forensic science laboratories for drug testing have an application as well for the characterization of smokeless gunpowders. Sulfuric acid, alone or with modifying materials, will react with diphenylamine stabilizer to give a considerable degree of intraclass variation among smokeless gunpowders.
