How much money do you make per hour?...

What exactly are the laws if you were to make those explosives from homemade materials. I just want to do it for personal observation and have no interest in breaking laws. Would it be illegal to make napalm etc.? :?:

Because in theory, the US is a compact between several sovereign governments, some things are controlled by the feds but others are local ordinances and so differ in each local area; in some states paregoric (tincture of opium) is legal for teething children; in others it's banned; so for things like this you would have to consult local regulations. In general, the rules seem to be getting more restrictive. Some things can be found in the Anarchists' Cookbook, but there was also a publication called the Chemical Formulary which gave basic commercial recipes for all sorts of things and it included a couple of pyrotechnic recipes. It was the ninth volume of the CF that I found the really easy way to make nitrogen triiodide; it is dangerous because like many N compounds, the N bonds pack a lot of energy and are unstable; its ok wet and in small quantities it just explodes under the slightest pressure when dry so you smear it on sidewalks and after it dries you get explosions as people walk on it; in large quantities, it just blows up and could damage eyes and hands; most explosives utilize unstable N bonds nitroglyerine, nitrocellulose, TNT ... . Nitrocellulose as used as a substitute for ivory billiard balls, except sometimes when two balls hit each other they exploded. ah well...
Anyway, as someone who barely survived the risks of my childhood, I really advise knowing what you are doing and having the proper equipment (masks, ventilators and such); True it was fun napalming the banana tree; and taking old mainframe computers and dissolving them in aquaregia was an unforgettable experience as the Au was precipiated as a marvelous golden sludge, but I do have one less finger than most people my age, a scar across my hand that limits the ability to open it and reduced lung capacity.

Any respect I might have had for you, an unintelligent little kid who can't spell to save your life, is now gone. Science isn't for you dude, join the army, or better yet become a priest..
