  Britain.tv Wikipedia - ANFO
It is by far the most widely used explosive in coal mining, quarrying, metal mining, and civil construction: it accounts for an estimated 80% of the 6,000,000,000 pounds (2,700,000 metric tons) of explosive used annually in North America.
ANFO under most conditions is considered a high explosive: it decomposes through detonation rather than deflagration and with a high velocity of detonation.
If ANFO is to be used in wet mining conditions, considerable effort must be taken to dewater boreholes.

ANFO stands for Ammonium Nitrate / Fuel Oil, and describes a crude but effective explosive that is used by farmers to clear stumps.
Because of the easy availability of its ingredients, ANFO is often used by terrorists for large bombs.
ANFO was often used by the Provisional IRA in its bombing campaigns and Palestinian extremist groups.

 ANFO (Gerald L. Hurst; Arno Hahma; Norman L. Reitzel; Timothy Melton)
Typical ANFO has a critical diameter too large to get a charge going with less than several grams of HE and it is best initiated with a good fraction of a pound or more of a cap-sensitive HE (i.e., a primer).
ANFO COULD be initiated by a pulse of not more than a few hundred thousand psi but it would be very difficult and a true waste of time for even an expert to attempt to construct an LE device capable of doing the job.
ANFO is limited in its reaction rates becuuse it must decompose in relatively large solid crystal units and then diffuse together with the fuel to react.

This means ANFO sacks float, which is no good, and additionally, the low density means the power is somewhat low.
ANFO blown into the hole with a pneumatic system fractures as it is places, raising the density to about.9 or.92.
Another problem with ANFO: for reliable detonation, it needs confinement, either from a casing, borehole, etc, or from the mass of the charge.

 Why Did Bill Clintons NSA fund BATF Research on ANFO Bombs?
Records indicate that this ANFO explosives expert and his associates had constructed and destroyed at least eight vehicles in "test bombing experiments" out at a secret range in the New Mexico desert in the twelve months prior to the OKC bombing.
And, according to federal government records obtained by Media Bypass, Everhart, an accomplished ATF expert in ANFO truck bombs, was actually one of the first federal law officers to report the details of the bombing to his superiors from the scene in front of the Murrah Building, within minutes of the blast.
Indeed the only major ANFO vehicle bombing in U.S. history, prior to OKC, occurred in August, 1970 at the University of Wisconsin, in Madison, Wis. One of the key suspects in that bombing, Leo Frederick Burt, is, incidentally, still at large.

To this extent, the opinion was flawed for the same reason Williams' ANFO opinion was flawed because it was based on the receipts.
The Department Of Justice Inspector General found that the FBI had based its conclusion that there was an ANFO bomb in the truck solely on the fact that Terry Nichols, who lived on a farm, had bought fertilizer.
The one test that was used at the Murrah Building to support the presence of ANFO also indicated the presence of Dynamite, as revealed during testimony in the Nichols trial.

 ANFO desensitizing (Gerald L. Hurst)
It should be mentioned that the ANFO and the treated ANFO used in these experiments was not actually in the form of prills but rather a powder with about 30% passing through a 35 mesh screen.
The testing of process' ability to desensitize ANFO to initiation by primer charges was not adequate as described by the examples listed in the patent, but it was enough for the talk shows.
As a matter of fact, many millions of pounds of ANFO are sold in premixed 50 lb bags and more millions are delivered as premixed product to the bore holes in mix trucks which are barely distinguishable from cement trucks.

Used engine oil to be utilized in ANFO mixtures should not be modified in any way that could change the basic properties of the used engine oil.
ANFO mixtures made with blended oil should not be stored or used to manufacture packaged or cartridged ANFO products.
Recommendation: ANFO mixtures made with blended oil shall not be combined with other materials, such as emulsions, to form blasting agent blends unless it has been determined that such combinations (blended oil ANFO/emulsions) are compatible.

 [No title]
Accordingly, Williams' opinion that the main charge was ANFO appears to be based solely on his technical expertise as an explosives examiner and thus appears to be very incriminating to someone (like defendant Nichols) who allegedly purchased ANFO components before the Oklahoma City explosion.
Had Williams explicitly stated in his report that the ANFO opinion was based on the defendant's purchases, the opinion could have been appropriately discounted as a non-expert conclusion that seeks to match the characteristics of the explosion with evidence associated with the defendants.
This incomplete statement of the VOD of ANFO is analogous to Williams' incomplete statement of the VOD of urea nitrate in the World Trade Center case.

 OKC Bombshell Implicates Feds In Murrah Blast
In reality, the ANFO story was born only 10 minutes after the blast when a high-ranking BATF official by the name of Harry Everhart witnessed the blast from nearby and called the BATF office in Dallas to excitedly announce, “Someone has just blown up the federal building in Oklahoma City with a truckload of ANFO!”
According to government documents released later, Ever hart was experienced in loading large amounts of ammonium nitrate fertilizer into a vehicle for use as a terrorist truck bomb, and his presence in the midst of the second worst terrorist attack in U.S. history looms suspicious to this day.
Records indicate that this ANFO explosives expert and his associates had destroyed at least eight vehicles in “test bombing experiments” at a secret range in the New Mexico desert in the 12 months prior to the OKC bombing.
