Playing with Nitrocellulose

Here I demonstrate the ignition of nitrocellulose. Nitrocellulose is some fun stuff, pretty easy to make too. I used sulfuric acid drain opener and potassium nitrate as the nitrating solution, although using real nitric acid would yield better results. There are a bunch of good videos on YouTube on making this stuff, so I won't be making a how-to video for guncotton.

Here is a how to on making nitrocellulose, skip down on the page to the hexanitrate:

Thanks to ChemXu for giving me the idea to make this stuff, check out his chemistry/pyro videos here: http://www.youtube.com/user/ChemXu

about the KNO3: thats false.. it was because you lacked the nitration time
and / or the proper conditions (temperature, covering of beaker preferably)

Автор JaiNobesIsARat (5 лет)
Probably Carbon Dioxide, water vapour and Nitrogen.

@styropyro What gas does it turn into? CO2, N2, O2?

Автор TheAndjoo (3 года)
@styropyro is the gas bad for you?

Автор ChemXu (5 лет)
i prefer using ammonium nitrate, the results are cleaner, burns faster, and
the nitrating solution is more liquid, so it takes less time to nitrate

Автор mewrox99 (5 лет)
@mewrox99 I ment flash paper a.k.a nitrocellulose not flash powder

Автор Johnathon Selstad (5 лет)
The "fire" that you see is actually burning gases and particles which emit
light. I suppose they oxidize into some invisible gas.

Автор g3ov4n12 (4 года)
The reason because it leaved residue is because its not fully nitrated.
Nitric acid is better, but KNO3 will nitrate too. You must had leaved it
more time or adjusted the ratio.

@wtfdood25 A true 5mW laser cannot light flash powder. If your laser can
light strike anyware matches then it probably can light it

You can do much better with KNO3 ! I've tried with fuming nitric
acid/sulfuric acid, nitric acid/suluric acid, fuming nitric acid/ fuming
sulfuric acid, but KNO3 was the best after fuming HNO3/fuming H2SO4.
