Bimetallic alloys, such as iron nickel (FeNi), iron palladium (FePd), and magnesium palladium (MgPd) provide in situ catalyst system fo remediating and degrading nitro and peroxide explosive compounds. Specifically, 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), cyclo-1,3,5-trimethylene-2,4,6-trinitramine RDX), triacetone triperoxide (TATP), nitrocellulose and nitroglycerine which are contaminants in ground water, soil, and other structures can be treated on site to remediate explosive contamination.
