What kind of stuff would I have to get into to reduce a nitro compound to an amine? The pipe bomb sounds interesting, but in these days of rampant patriotism in America, just saying the word bomb makes folks nervous. Someone could even suggest comparative research, if it might lead to worthwhile information. Platinum catalyst pellets...what a woman. Peace.
After all, I am just an upside down e.
I reccomend you take a look at Rhodiums page and UTFSE
Tons of info to behold if you look for it.
