Happy St. Patricks Day (Don’t forget your green)
“Collodion was an early type of plastic explosive, and a component of later explosives such as gelignite. It is a solution/suspension of nitrocellulose in solvents (such as ethanol or ether). It congeals into a translucent plastic substance. It was used in the Fenian dynamite campaign of the 1800’s, as well as the IRA S-campaign of the 1900’s.
Besides its explosive use, it has also been used as a wound dressing and in the manufacture of early movie film.”
