Kemlo - 
If no one responds - it's because they were blown to smithereens.

I have a video of a bottle of picric acid that blew up in a training demo 
- pretty nasty.

Kemlo, exactly. But my point is that it is in a solution with other
chemicals, and I presume that adds a measure of stability.

I think it is because picric acid explodes when dry but I've tried, and
tried, and tried and it has never exploded.

Has anyone ever succeeded?
