* The drugs that Zeke makes in ''Film/TheFaculty'' are made from "caffeine pills and some other household shit." The Other Stuff in this case is likely [=NaCl=] and [[YourMindMakesItReal dehydrated Placebo]] according to how the drugs affect [[spoiler: the aliens, unless it's a case of BizarreAlienBiology]].

* In-universe in ''{{Literature/Frankenstein}}''. The titular doctor is deliberately vague about how he brought a sewn-together corpse to life. The sailor he's telling his story to tries to inquire further, but Frankenstein refuses because he doesn't want anyone else to replicate his experiment.

* It's not explosive, but it is dangerous: "moon tea" in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' is based on natural abortifacients such as tansy and pennyroyal, which were historically used, but produced nasty side effects at best and would straight-up kill a woman if the mixture was even slightly off. George R R Martin [[http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/A_Myriad_of_Questions/ "added a few fantasy touches"]] because he didn't want anybody trying this at home.

* Parodied in strip during the ''Last Laugh'' CrisisCrossover in Franchise/TheDCU. The strip had SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker explaining how to make his lethal Joker venom but censored out the names of various ingredients but left in comments like "You'll need to go to the hardware store for that". The joke, of course, being that you couldn't make the entirely fictitious Joker venom even if you did know what it contained.

** Bringing the above two together, Mythbusters took a hack at some of the chemistry on Breaking Bad, proving in short order that hydrofluoric acid wasn't quite nasty enough to actually eat through a bathtub. What was? Sulfuric acid and "special sauce", which Adam and Jamie refused to elaborate on. Those who know a bit of chemistry trivia might suspect that the "special sauce" was actually [[spoiler:reagent-grade hydrogen peroxide]], which when combined with H2SO4 produces a spectacularly violent glassware cleaning product called "piranha solution".

* Several levels in ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' feature cooking meth as one of the objectives. In game the mixture produces blue crystals as a ShoutOut to ''Series/BreakingBad''. Potential drug kingpins mixing the same ingredients in real life will be disappointed to find that all they've managed to create is salt water.
