Abstract

A class of exothermic reactions between, typically, a metal and an oxide, commonly referred to as thermite reactions, is reviewed with emphasis on their utilization in the synthesis and processing of materials. Theoretical and experimental results relating to ignition and combustion (self-propagation) characteristics of these reactions are presented.
