LANL Chemist creates a safer form of ammo|
By ANDY LENDERMAN Santa Fe New Mexican August 4, 2006
A Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist has developed a less toxic explosive for both civilian and military use.
The development has potential for broad uses in hunting and military ammunition. And while the ammunition may be used to lethal effect, government officials say the discovery could better protect workers who manufacture ammunition or explosives as well as reduce pollution of land and water near shooting ranges and military bases.
My Hang Huynh, a chemist, developed a primary explosive made with iron instead of lead.
