The results of investigations of the products of the electrical explosion of aluminum and tungsten wires in liquid media (water and decane) are presented. It is shown that the phase composition of the powders formed depends on the energy characteristics of the explosion. The mechanism by which the products of the explosion are formed is discussed.
