Nitroglycerin Sampling & Analysis
Nitroglycerin comes in the form of a colorless-to-yellow viscous liquid or pale yellow crystals. It is used as an ingredient in explosives, most associated with the construction, demolition, and mining industries. It is also an ingredient in sublingual tablets, in sprays, and in patches to help with vascular dilation in heart patients.
The substance enters the body through inhalation, ingestion, skin absorption, or skin/eye contact. It can cause severe irritation of the skin and eyes; it can also cause headache, dizziness, flushing of the face, nausea, vomiting, and shock/collapse.
