Factors that influenced self-heating in the interaction of aluminum nanopowder produced by electrical explosion with liquid water were studied. The effects of suspension heating, medium pH (over the range 1.0-12.0), admixtures of Cu2+, Ni2+,and Ag+ metal cations (0.0001-0.1 mol/l), and passivating coating (B, F, and Ni) were investigated.
