Abstract

Aluminum powders of different particle sizes (from nano- [as=0.01-0.5μm] to micron-sized (as=1-500μm) and particle shapes (spherical and flakes) are widely used in energetics: from rocket propulsion to self-propagated high-temperature synthesis and water-splitting hydrogen-generating compositions. In this chapter the features of aluminum powder properties will be discussed along with their reaction kinetics and oxidation behavior in different oxidation media: from weak oxidizers (water and air) to strong oxidizers such as rocket propellants.
