Chemical Equivalency List 2

Anyone can get many chemicals from hardware stores, supermarkets, and drug stores to get the materials
to make explosives or other dangerous compounds. A would-be terrorist would merely need a station
wagon and some money to acquire many of the chemicals named here.

^ Nitric acid is very difficult to find nowadays. It is usually stolen by bomb makers, or made by the
process described in a later section. A desired concentration for making explosives about 70%.

& The iodine sold in drug stores is usually not the pure crystaline form that is desired for producing
ammonium triiodide crystals. To obtain the pure form, it must usually be acquired by a doctor's
prescription, but this can be expensive. Once again, theft is the means that terrorists result to.
