The paper studies the combustion of mixtures of commercial aluminum powders (ASD-1 and ASD-4) and ultrafine powders of Al and γ-Al 2O3 in air. It is shown that the combustion of coarsely dispersed commercial powders is accompanied by binding of air nitrogen with formation of AlN and AlON. The combustion of mixtures proceeds in two stages with the possible formation of intermediate gaseous and liquid products. The processes of sintering and incomplete combustion play an important role in the combustion of mixtures of commercial powders and ultrafine powders of aluminum.
