Ammonium nitrate was the nitrate of ammonia, and could be used both as a fertilizer and an explosive. The Jedi-turned-farmer Jelph Marrian used this compound to booby-trap his starfighter on Kesh, resulting in the deaths of Grand Lord Lillia Venn, her guards and the Sith Lords Sawj and Flen Luzo.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ammonium nitrate is in fact a real-world chemical compound used as a fertiliser and cost-effective mining explosive.
