New to this forum. I am a writer by profession, I am currently working on a locked room mystery novel where the victim is wearing an acetate shirt, what chemicals an cause acetate fabric to catch fire. I was thinking of incedenary bullet which cacuses the fabric to catch fire.
Is there any other chemical (possibly something that was available in the 1940s) which when shot or sprayed at acetate fabric can cause it to catch fire?
Any creative ideas are welcome!
