2. Increase in the reactivity It is observed that the reactivity of aluminum nanoparticles is considerably enhanced compared to micrometer-sized samples. 14 illustrates the effect of aluminum size on the Al+O2 reaction [SUN 06] where thermal analysis scans are given for 105 nm average diameter sample, 86 nm and 6 µm at a heating rate of 3°C/min under 25/75 O2/Ar atmosphere. We clearly see that there is a large exotherm reaction peak present for the nanoparticles before reaching the Al melting peak at 660 °C.
1. e. 2,042°C) [BOI 02, BRO 95]. Hence, it was suggested that the oxide film that is always present on the aluminum surface prevents ignition until it starts melting. This melting results in the formation of isolated oxide islands in replacement of the previous continuous coating film. The surface of aluminum is then exposed to the oxidizer and the particle ignites. Therefore, the description of aluminum ignition can be envisaged at a constant temperature. It has been recognized that a better agreement with experiments can be achieved in most cases if the ignition temperature is selected somewhat below the Al2O3 melting point in the sense that a thin and constrained protective oxide has its melting point lower than the bulk value.
12, burning rates increase as the particle size increases with particle size except in the cases where the Al2O3 content exceeded 50% (for A1 diameter <50 nm). The Al2O3 may decrease the burning rate and overpower the theoretical effect that reducing particle size will increase burning rate. The absence of a clear effect of the size of aluminum nanoparticles on the ignition delay most likely results from the differences in the mixing quality of the thermite mixtures prepared with different nanopowders.
