Materials that can sustain an explosive fission chain reaction are essential for all types of nuclear explosives, from first-generation fission weapons to advanced thermonuclear weapons. The most common of these fissile materials are highly enriched uranium (HEU) and plutonium of almost any isotopic composition. This appendix gives details of current stocks of HEU (table 7A.1) and separated plutonium (table 7A.2), including in weapons, and details of the current capacity to produce these materials (tables 7A.3 and 7A.4, respectively). The information in the tables is based on new estimates prepared for the Global Fissile Material Report 2010 of the International Panel on Fissile Materials.1
