Im having trouble with determining proper solvents for activated carbon and sulfur. are either of them soluble in isopropyl alcohol? I'm trying to improve upon my method of making gunpowder. My current method is dissolving the nitrate salt in water and mixing the carbon and sulfur with isopropyl alcohol. I feel like I'm doing SOMETHING right because this method makes gunpowder that burns hotter and cleaner than any commercial gunpowder ive ever seen, but I still want to push further.
