The experimental results are presented on the air combustion of ultradispersed aluminum powder with additives of ultradispersed powders of copper, nickel, iron, tin, silicon, black lead, boron, tungsten and molybdenum. The final products composition has been studied using the methods of X-ray and chemical analyses. The tin addition has an inhibiting effect on the chemical nitrogen fixing in air in the form of aluminum nitride and oxynitride. The addition of iron, tungsten and molybdenum facilitates the nitrogen content increase.
