Recent Advances in Synthesis and Densification of Nanomaterials in Self-Propagating High-Temperature Regime
This invited talk reviews recent advances in synthesis of nanopowders in selfpropagating high-temperature regime with emphasis on chemically-assisted combustion synthesis of nonoxide ceramic nanopowders, specifically SiC, Si3N4, and AlN-BN. Recent results of in-situ densification of intermetallic-ceramic composites formed from nanosized reactants in a combustion regime are also presented. Examples of combustion synthesized TiAl3-Al2O3 and NiAl-Al2O3-CNT nanocomposites are included and discussed.
