Recipe for simple homemade napalm | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Napalm is the generic name for the mixture of a flammable petroleum substance, typically diesel gasoline, with a thickening or gelling agent to give the fiery substance “sticky” properties. Napalm-like fiery substances have been used since early Greek times for war purposes. Modern day uses include of course, as an incendiary substance that sticks readily to victims prolonging the burn, and damage, to the victim (forbidden by modern-day “rules” of war). On the other hand, napalm can also be used in animal traps and to focus a burn on a given area for a prolonged period of time (i.e. it can be used as a cutting device). http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/weapons/homemade-napalm-recipe
