Ammonium nitrate has its very own Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ammonium_nitrate_disasters). Why does such an apparently stable solid have such a bad accident record? The talk will discuss the properties of ammonium nitrate, incidents and public perception of ammonium nitrate hazards.
