The FMED invention describes a preparation of moderately volatile organic explosives (e.g. TATP) in a fluid matrix. This solvent is chemically inert and olefactorically neutral. In particular peroxide explosives with high sensitivity to friction impact and electrostatic discharge can be handled safely this way. The explosive material can evaporate from the matrix. Therefore the preparation is a safe scent source of authentic substance. Authentic substance testing agents available on the market for this class of substance so far are bonded to solid support materials and only have a low capacity. As a liquid testing agent an FMED can be dosed and applied as required. The high capacity also allows scent traces to be provided over a longer period and large amounts of explosive material to be simulated.
