Review

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.

Keywords

Oxide Polymer Combustion Material Processing Exothermic Reaction 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
