After authorities asked about his possession of the bomb-making supplies, Russell allegedly said he used to be involved in an engineering club at the University of South Florida back in 2013 and that he utilized the HMTD
to "boost homemade rockets" and launch balloons into the air.
Separate chemicals were found, as well as quantities he had mixed to make HMTD
powder which he stored in plastic boxes in his wardrobe just three feet from his bed.
As a result of the load study of HMTD
piston mechanism we received the generalized dependence for friction force calculation in piston pair depending on a coefficient of friction and the geometrical sizes of piston pair.
The components found in the subject's possession, each with confirmed identification, could be used to produce HMTD
Tannerite has tested its product many times but never combined it with HMTD
and did not know what the result would be, Yerger said.
An amount of HMTD
was transported by Northumbria Police officers down to Kent where it was analysed, potentially putting the officers at serious risk of harm.
At an office unit on the Imex Business Park in Tyseley, officers found constituent parts to make HMTD
, plus other substances which when combined could be made to explode.
They were seen going into a house in Sparkbrook, Birmingham, where the materials were stored and made into HMTD
Explosives used in commercial blasting, military application and peroxide-based explosives like TNT, RCX, HMX, TATP and HMTD
were detected by the device when it was being tested.
Moinul Abedin had stored enough chemicals at a terraced house in Sparkbrook and a business unit in Tyseley to make bombs using the explosive HMTD
Dr Mostafa, who has a PhD in chemistry, said he had told Abedin how to make the high explosive HMTD
but denied showing him how to do it in experiments.
