RDX

RDX, an acronym for Research Department Explosive, is chemically named cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine. It was discovered by Hans Henning of Germany in 1899. It is called hexogen in some locales. It was not widely used until World War II. It is fairly sensitive and it can be made into many different plastic explosives. It is frequently used in blasting caps and percussion-type explosives.
