Biodegradation of the Explosives TNT, RDX and HMX

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

In the early twentieth century, more than 60 highly explosive compounds were developed and synthesized for military and civilian use. Of these, the most widely used explosives in the world are probably hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) and octahydro-1,3,5,7-tetranitro-1,3,5,7-tetrazocine (HMX).
