    This is one of those games where it's easier to visualize what needs to be done. ...so, I came across a video for this achievement. Even though it's for PS3, there's absolutely no difference, as the game is exactly the same.
    Level: Kieselguhrs / Laboratory

    I've found that the best level to do this achievement on is in the Kieselguhrs level of the Laboratory chapter (Chapter 3, Level 5). It should be the second level that you control nitroglycine in. Much like the real stuff, it's highly flammable and will combust when it touches fire and lasers. Exerting too much force on it (by falling too far or colliding too fast into things) will also cause an explosion.

    Make sure you make all your movements slow and meticulous. There is no need to rush in this level! You start the level by traveling through a pipe that directs you onto a lever. Traveling to the right side of the lever will carry you down onto a platform that has a black door with a blinking red light. You'll now want to push slowly against the door until a little bit of the nitroglycerine squeezes past. Move the rest of the liquid quickly back left. You should have caused the bulb with the laser in it to explode for your first explosion.

    Now for the other 9 explosions, you'll want to travel to the left side and allow a little bit to drop off the ledge onto the laser. Each time make sure to quickly move the surviving liquid to the right so you don't accidentally cause a chain reaction. You'll may fail at it a few times before you get the hang of it.

    After you've caused the other 9 explosions, you'll need to finish the level. It's fairly straightforward to the end, just don't go too fast and you'll be fine. Once you get to another bulb with a laser in it, you've reached the end of the level. You can play it safe and squeeze a little nitroglycerine off the end to destroy it first or just let your momentum carry you over it into the halfpipe. Don't take it too fast though or you'll overshoot it into a laser.

    Good Luck!
