Over the past two decades, the rapid development of nanochemistry and nanotechnology has enabled the synthesis of various materials and oxides in the form of nanopowders, making it possible to produce new energetic compositions and nanomaterials.
This book has a bottom-up structure, moving from the synthesis of nanomaterials through to the fields of application. Starting from the synthesis of aluminum nanoparticles for fuel applications, the author provides a detailed state of the art of the different methods for the preparation of aluminum-based reactive nanomaterials. She then goes on to describe the techniques developed for their characterization and provides a description of the fundamental mechanisms responsible for their ignition and combustion.
The possibilities and limitations of different energetic nanomaterials and related structures are also provided,along with the analysis of their chemical and thermal properties. The book proceeds by studying the performances of reactive materials in terms of the enthalpy of reaction and reactivity, mainly characterized as the self-sustained combustion rate, before concluding with a description of current reactive nanomaterial applications underlying the promising integration of aluminum-based reactive nanomaterials into MicroElectroMechanicalSystems.
