Abstract

The paper reports results of studying the combustion of ultrafine aluminum (surface average diameter of particles is ≈ 0.1 μm) in a sealed bomb at an initial air pressure of 1 atm. The combustion proceeds in two stages, similarly to combustion in air. It is shown that during the two‐stage combustion of ultrafine aluminum powder in the bomb, the mass concentration of chemically bound nitrogen in the final products increases by ≈ 20% in terms of aluminum nitride. An increase in nitrogen content in confined combustion validates the previously proposed mechanism of binding air nitrogen with participation of the gas phase during aluminum combustion.
