Anyone here know how to make nitric acid if one needs it for some reason and doesn’t want to break into a school laboratory to get it? The fuming red variety would be best, but any synthesis would be appreciated.

Look in the improvised munitions manual in the archives.

is it true that if you dip sum cotton wool into nitric acid, let it dry, then put it into sulphuric. its as good as gunpowder?????

today’s regular gunpowder is double-based nitrocellulose.
with the usual method of mixing nitric acid and sulphuric acid and adding cotton you’ll get single-based nitrocellulose which was early gunpowder.

can u make nitric acid by : sulfuric + KNO3
what r the ratios???

A density of up to 1.544 can be reached with 12.7% dissolved nitrogen dioxide in fuming nitric acid. Nitric acid forms an azeotrope with water at 68%, it this has a bp of 120.5 C (yes, this bp is higher than either water or the acid boils at pure).

WHAT ARE THE RATIOS (SULFURIC : KNO3) ?????????????
I’VE USED 1:2 (S:KNO3) RATIO AND IT DIDN’T MAKE RED NITRIC ACID.
