    Abstract

    Purple granules were found as an adulterant in a specimen of double-based smokeless powder that had been obtained from an improvised explosive-actuated incendiary device. These granules were identified as having originated from tablets used by the U.S. Army in heating rations in the field. Trioxane, the active ingredient in these tablets, was identified by infrared and proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
