Developments in synthesis and combustion technology

This reference is an accessible update on combustion synthesis and chemical technology for the synthesis of composite materials. Nine chapters provide an overview of the topic with recent references, giving the reader an informed perspective. The book begins with an introduction to the thermodynamic models used in combustion synthesis. The following chapters explain the application of combustion synthesis to manufacture different materials such as nanostructured non-ferrous alloys, ceramic powders, functional gradient materials, superhard boron carbide materials, memory alloys shapes, biomaterials, high entropy alloys and rare earth phosphates. The range of topics makes this book a useful guide for students, scientists and industry professionals in the field of chemical engineering, metallurgy and materials science.
