PowerLabs Lead Styphnate Synthesis!

Video of combustion available.
A PowerLabs exclusive; chemically similar to Picric Acid, but more reactive and prone to initiation, this is the starting chemical for the synthesis of Lead Styphnate, the number one priming compound used nowadays.

At some point in time ChemLabs was a fully equipped laboratory with over 150 analytical grade reactants and various pieces of specialized lab glassware and equipment available, suitable for performing almost any conceivable non-industrial chemical procedure or synthesis.
The laboratory described here was my second chemical lab (the first one was located in Holland and didn't have a fraction of what this one had) and was assembled over a period of approximately one year, during which a couple thousand dollars was invested in every obtainable reagent as well as all the equipment required to handle those reagents, and a couple hundred hours went into using these reagents to synthesize reagents which could not be obtained: This was the case for all the Perchlorates, Nitrates (except NaNO3), Chlorates (except NaClO3), paraformaldehyde, Hexamine, Styphnic and Picric Acid, and others, although the more hazardous chemicals were only synthesized when needed, so as to reduce any danger associated with storing unstable chemicals.
This page continues to be updated as time permits: several other experiments still need a write-up.
Please note the following:
PowerLabs does NOT sell any type of chemicals, or distribute any information about these topics aside from what is made available here.

The longer and narrower the crystals, the more susceptible leadstyphnate is to static electricity.

Lead styphnate does not react with metalsand is less sensitive to shock and friction than

Lead styphnate varies in color from yellow to brownand is particularly sensitive to fire and the discharge of staticelectricity, being the most sensitive explosive in this category; when dry, it can bereliably detonated by static discharges from thehuman body, requiring only 0,004J for that to occur.

Lead styphnate is only slightly soluble in water and methyl alcohol and may beneutralized by a sodium carbonate solution. It is stable in storage, even at elevatedtemperatures.

Picric acid is an organic compound with the formula (ON)CHOH
