Caption: Ammonium nitrate burning. An explosion of flames leaps out of a dish containing burning ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3). Ammonium nitrate is used in the manufacture of explosives and fertilisers. It was first used as an explosive by Alfred Nobel, the founder of the Nobel Prize, who used it in his dynamite mixtures in 1875. The compound's true explosive power was not realised until the tragic Texas City disaster of 1947, however, when a ship full of ammonium nitrate blew up in harbour.
