Consider a vanity publication printed on nitrated paper "flash paper".
Spectrally-resolved UV and short visible absorption by nitrated aromatic gases is accounted for in each grid cell.
Nonsolution shell real and imaginary refractive indices account for spectrally-resolved UV and short visible absorption by nitrated and aromatic aerosols and other UV-absorbing organic aerosol components.
A lot of material: photostats, diagrammatic printouts, two sets of holocryptic gammas with red and black pages printed on nitrated cellulose, KGB/GRU Monome-Dinome tables with complete matrices and side and top co-ordinates, so forth.
The most highly nitrated body forms the basis of the explosive variety; the least highly nitrated forms that of the soluble gun cotton used for making collodion for photographic and other purposes.
The nitrocelluloses are all highly inflammable bodies, the more highly nitrated burning with explosive force.
Turning now to the smokeless powders, in which the chief ingredient is nitro-cellulose in some form (either gun-cotton or nitro-lignine, &c.), one of the first of these was Prentice's gun-cotton, which consisted of nitrated paper 15 parts, mixed with 85 parts of unconverted cellulose.
It should contain as little non-nitrated or unconverted cotton and as little gun-cotton as possible, as they are both insoluble in nitro - glycerol.
(Some prefer twenty-four hours, but there is more chance in this case of the product containing non-nitrated cellulose.)
~ -- However well the cotton has been nitrated, it is almost certain to contain a small quantity of non - nitrated or unconverted cotton.
