Acetone Peroxide/TATP/TCAP

Acetone Peroxide is known as "Mother of Satan" because of its instability. This is a primary explosive, normally used as initiators. Storage of this chemical should be done with great care and in a cool, dark, and dry location. It is sensitive to shock, flame, or abrasion.


  1. Hydrogen Peroxide
  2. Acetone
  3. Sulfuric Acid
  4. Eye Dropper
  5. Graduated Cylinder
  6. Thermometer
  7. Ice
  8. NaCl (Salt)


  1. Add 30 ml acetone and 50 ml hydrogen peroxide into glass container and mix.
  2. Cool the mixture in an ice/salt bath
  3. Cool mixture to 5°C
  4. While stirring, add dropwise 2.5 ml sulfuric acid, making sure temperature stays around 5°C and never above 10°C
  5. Stir for 5 minutes after all the sulfuric acid is added
  6. Cool mixture in some kind of ice bath or box for 12-24 hours.
  7. Filter out the precipitate (white crystals) using paper towels or filter paper
  8. Wash the crystals using small amounts of ice cold water, handling the crystals gently
  9. Allow crystals to dry, store for use in a cool, dry, dark location.

*Note: Acetone peroxide is viable for aproximately 7 days after creation.
