Due to its small stability it is not used in Europe, since one can replace it by other sturdier explosives. Only in the USA it attained a certain meaning as blasting cap filling. It is stabilized with ammonium carbonate and must be absolutely acidless, since it can detonate otherwise spontaneously.

To advise against it by sixfold nitrating of Mannitol with production in unsecured laboratories is urgently for evident reasons referred small stability. Production by laymen is to likewise advise against this usually the necessary laboratory instruments and radiators does not possess there. Already at a mixture temperature of 18"°C everything threatens to explode.
