Caption: Computer graphics space-filling representation of a molecule of penterythritol tetranitrate (PETN), a powerful explosive. A molecule loaded with either nitro- (NO2) or nitrate (NO3) groups becomes highly explosive. PETN has four nitrate groups, with oxygen atoms represented in red and nitrogen atoms in blue. At the centre of the molecule are green carbon atoms and white hydrogen atoms. Modelled using Chemical Design's Chem-X software.
