NTN is not an explosive compound but rather an explosive mixture. Although I don't particularly care about mixtures, this one intrigues me because it is a liquid explosive. This substance is a clear to light yellow homogeneous liquid that is somewhat sensitive to shock and friction but stable in the open air.
NTN is composed of a mixture of 51.7% nitromethane, 33.2% tetranitromethane, and 15.1% 1-nitropropane. Percentages are by weight.
