It is thus obvious that picric acid is much less explosive than the nitric ethers, such as nitro-glycerol and nitro-cellulose, and very considerably less explosive than the nitrogen compounds and fulminates.
The cryoprotectants used are colligative in action, glucose and glycerol are two of the most common cryoprotectants (a particular species confines itself to the use of a single cryoprotectant).
