1. RDX = Research Department Explosive.

RDX is the organic compound with the formula (O2NNCH2)3. It is a white solid widely used as an explosive. Chemically, it is classified as nitramide. A more powerful explosive than TNT, it was used widely in World War II.

2 . TNT = Trinitrotoluene.
A flammable toluene derivative, C7H5N3O6, used as a high explosive and in the manufacture of dyestuffs and photographic chemicals.

3 . CMC = Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose gum.

It is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups (-CH2-COOH) bound to some of the hydroxyl groups of the glucopyranose monomers that make up the cellulose backbone. It is often used as its sodium salt, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose.
