The first real explosive was Nitroglycerin. It was far too dangerous for stationary use. A much safer explosive called dynamite. This includes nitroglycerin and wood pulp.

That's about it .

Surely gunpowder was they first commonly available explosive? Nitroglycerin came several hundred years later.
