Abstract

An aqueous heterogeneous redox mixture containing aluminium nitrate, silica fume (soot), and urea in appropriate mole ratio, when rapidly heated to $500^{\circ}C$, boils, foams and ignites with a flame to yield weakly crystalline mullite powder in less than 5 min. Fully crystalline mullite was obtained by incorporating an extra amount of oxidizer, such as ammonium perchlorate. The solid combustion products (mullite) were identified by X-ray powder diffraction and characterized by IR, particle size analysis, surface area measurements, and by SEM and TEM microscopies.
