This technology pertains to nanotechnology robotics that can be exposed to explosives to render them useless. The Nano-bots break down the compounds that make the explosives dangerous, through processes that destroy the molecular bonds in-between the elements. It would take some time for the nanoparticles to spread, and eat the explosives, and the amount of the nanoparticles needed would be based on the number of explosives. The technology would also be able to destroy other compounds and elements as well, however specific nanotechnology would be created per-explosive type.
