About this Item

Sobrero, Ascagne. "Sur plusieur composés détonants produits avec l'acide nitrique et le sucre, la dextrine, la lactine, la mannite et la glycérine", In: Comptes rendus, volume 24, number 7, pp 247 248, offered in the weekly issue of pp (209)-252. Very good copy, extracted from a larger bound volume, and offered with the scarce original wrappers (though detached). __+__ ( "On several detonating compounds produced with nitric acid and sugar, dextrin, lactose, mannitol, and glycerine.") "Nitroglycerin was the first practical explosive produced that was stronger than black powder. It was first synthesized by the Italian chemist Ascanio Sobrero in 1847, working under Théophile-Jules Pelouze at the University of Turin. Sobrero initially called his discovery pyroglycerine and warned vigorously against its use as an explosive. [As a matter of fact Sobrerro came regret his discovery.] Nitroglycerin was later adopted as a commercially useful explosive by Alfred Nobel, who experimented with safer ways to handle the dangerous compound after his younger brother, Emil Oskar Nobel. For over 130 years, nitroglycerin has been used medically as a potent vasodilator (dilation of the vascular system) to treat heart conditions, such as angina pectoris and chronic heart failure."--Wiki.
