Toedlichkeitsgrenzen fuer Albino-Ratten bei Anwending kleiner Sprengstoffmengen (Morbidity Limits for Albino Rats with the Application of Small Explosives)

[More] This study reviews experiments on albino rats to determine the impact of very small explosions on survival and biological function. Tabular summaries of the rats' death and injury rates are provided (immediate death, short-term survival, long-term survival, complete survival) based on the size, position, and distance of the explosive. The study also examines and provides microscopoc-scale photographs of pathological changes to the lungs.

Application of the Cathode Ray Polarograph to the Analysis of Explosives

Author: Hetman, JS (1960) (640-646). (NIOSH/00128144). HERO ID: 1466513

[Less] A method for the determination of nitroglycerine (55630) (NG) in double based propellants and blasting . . . [More] A method for the determination of nitroglycerine (55630) (NG) in double based propellants and blasting explosives was developed. For propellants, 0.1 grams of powder was mixed with 10 milliliters (ml) of pyridine at a temperature of 40 to 45 degrees-C. After cooling, ethanol was added and 0.5ml was transferred to a flask where 9.5ml of base electrolyte was added and mixed. A polarogram was recorded and the percentage of NG was obtained by comparing the wave height of each sample with a standard. For blasting explosives, 0.2 grams was added to a 50/50 solution of pyridine and ethanol. Again, 0.5ml was transferred and added to 9.5ml of the base electrolyte and a polarogram was recorded. The percentage of NG was determined as for the propellants. The method was experimentally demonstrated and found to be very rapid, enabling the determination to be completed in 15 minutes, with an average error of less than 2 percent. The method was accurate in the presence of nitrocellulose, cyclonite, and dinitroglycol. The author concludes that the simplicity of the method will allow its use in the routine analysis of various explosives containing NG.

The "refereed" or "peer review" status of a journal comes from the Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory (http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com/), as supplied by the publisher. The term refers to the system of critical evaluation of manuscripts/articles by professional colleagues or peers. The content of refereed publications is sanctioned, vetted, or otherwise approved by a peer-review or editorial board. The peer-review and evaluation system is utilized to protect, maintain, and raise the quality of scholarly material published in serials. Publications subject to the referee process are assumed, then, to contain higher quality content than those that are not.

[Attacchi epileptici come manifestazione di intossicazione professionale da trimetilen-trinitroamina (T4)]

[Less] Trimethylenetrinitroamine or <> or <> is an explosive obtained by treating urotropine with . . . [More] Trimethylenetrinitroamine or <> or <> is an explosive obtained by treating urotropine with nitric acid. Workmen employed in the last phases of the production of this explosive, and especially in the drying and sieving, are exposed to the inhalation of powdered material. Several of them have shown a symptomatology consisting in generalised epileptic fits accompanied by loss of consciousness, absence of reflexes, biting of the tongue, salivation, enuresis and involuntary discharge of semen. The fits started suddenly, sometimes preceded by periods of sleelessness and nervous irritability; they were followed by deep coma lasting for several hours and often ending in vomiting and subsequent amnesia.Out of some 20 workmen exposed to the dust of T4, 17 had convulsive fits or attacks of loss of consciousness, either isolated or repeated. This fact cannot, therefore, be considered as casual but seems to be connected with the inhalation of T4 powder.
The workmen mainly affected by fits were those given to excessive drinking and eating, but there have been cases of persons so affected who were absolutely free from disease or vice. The authors believe that the epileptic fits are due to cortical angiospastic crises caused by absorption of T4.
