Phase compositions of nanopowders prepared by electrical explosion of tungsten, titanium and aluminium wires in liquid hydrocarbons (C 6H6, C6H14, C6H 5CH3, and C10H22), multicomponent reactionary surroundings such as hexametilenetetramine-decane suspension, and solid paraffin were investigated. It has been established that the output of carbon-saturated carbide phases increases with increasing density and dynamic viscosity of the working medium as well as consumed energy, and depends on elemental composition of hydrocarbons (C/H ratio in hydrocarbon molecules). The content of the carbide phases depends on the values of the upper warm-up border of chemical compounds stability.
