Propellant Analysis

The samples were granules of propellant recovered from materials shot at close range, mainly clothing from injured persons. Consequently, in the vast majority of instances the type of ammunition is not known. It must be noted that granules found may not necessarily be representative of the bulk, as composition can vary from granule to granule, and also that these are "discharged" propellant granules and in the act of discharge surface coatings can be blown or burned off.199

Table 21.1 and Table 21.2 give the propellant compositions detected over a 4-year period (1990 to 1993). Naphthalene and tributylphosphate are not mentioned in the literature on propellants.
