Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel patented a new explosive: dynamite. It was safer than conventional explosives used in Nobel’s times as black powder or nitro-glycerine. Nobel originally marketed his invention as “Nobel’s Blasting Powder.” He later changed the name to dynamite. It was derived from the Greek expression dýnamis (“power”).
