Abstract:

Metal combustion processes have been studied 1 by observing and spectroscopically analyzing visible emission 2 by detecting dark states through their characteristic laser-induced fluorescence and 3 by determining the nature and type of ionic products produced in some of these highly exothermic reactions. In the course of this work we seek general principals that can tell us about the various ways of disposing of excess reaction energy in the products. Author
