Expert Reviews

Aluminium Nanoparticles 
In aircraft applications, fuel is used not only as a propellant but also as a coolant and improving both the thermal conductivity and combustion enthalpy of the fuel is beneficial in these applications. These properties can be enhanced by dispersing Aluminum Nanoparticles into the fuel; however, the nanoparticles require stabilization from agglomeration and passivation from oxidation in order for these benefits to be realized in aircraft applications. Increasing the mission capability of aircraft is a never ending objective for the military. Critical to achieving this objective is improving the thermal performance and energy density of the fuel aboard the aircraft, which is used as both a propellant and coolant.

some of these metals (particularly aluminum) are previously widely used in energetic material formulations. Aluminium nanoparticles are of interest to a variety of fields including pyrotechnic, propellant, and explosive industries. Aluminium powder has been added to a range of these compositions to increase their performance through raising reaction energies, flame temperatures, and increasing blast rates. Nanoparticles of aluminium are more favourable because of their high enthalpy of combustion and rapid kinetics which increase these reaction properties even further. It is known that nano-sized aluminum particles is a new energetic material with very high reactivity because of large specific surface area, and is expected to be applied to a next generation propellant in the field of aerospace applications. The reactivity of aluminum nanoparticle depends on the particle diameter. It is reported that 30-50 nm aluminum nanoparticles are most sensitive.

Energetic materials find use in both military and civilian applications, however many commonly used materials suffer from serious deficiencies including toxicity and high sensitivity. nanothermites is a current hot topic in the field of energetic materials. Energetic materials are a class of materials containing both fuel and oxidizer in a mixture or within a single compound, and include all the broad areas of propellants, explosives and pyrotechnics. For thermite-type reactions, a metal oxide is the oxidizer, and aluminum the fuel. Aluminium nanoparticles are one of the most important nanoparticles because of their applications. These nanoparticles have many important applications that include: pyrotechnic, propellant, explosive industries, rocket fuel, igniter, smokes, tracers, alloy powder metallurgy parts for automobiles and aircrafts, heat shielding coatings of aircrafts, corrosion, resistant, conductive and heat reflecting paints, conductive and decorative plastics, soldering and termite welding.

Aluminium Nanoparticles Electric igniters find throughout the energetic materials industry in all areas of propellants, explosives and pyrotechnics; they are used wherever an electric current is desired to be used to initiate an energetic material. As a result of the  precise timing they afford, they can be used for igniting everything from rockets to blasting caps, to fireworks displays. aluminum thermite finds use for the high temperature welding of iron railway rails; its slow rate of energy release and high combustion temperature makes this possible.

Energetic materials find use in both military and civilian applications, however many commonly used materials suffer from serious deficiencies including toxicity and high sensitivity. Nanothermites exhibit vastly differing characteristics compared to their well known micron scale relatives and through the use of various preparatory chemical techniques can be tailored to have a wide spectra of chemical and energetic properties. This may allow use as superior replacements of conventional energetic materials in various applications.
