Advantages of Combustion Synthesis

This fully customizable service provides flexibility in both material compositions and physical properties.

  • High purity products
  • Precise particle to particle control of chemistry
  • Complex chemical doping possibilities
  • Minimizes post synthesis processing
  • Sub-micron particles sizes posible
  • High surface area obtainable (up to 40 m2/g)
  • Unlimited product compositions achievable
  • Available from small quantities to commercial scale

How it Begins

Chemical solution + atomization

The solution preparation allows for the best molecular mixing and even distribution of elements for precise control of particle to particle stoichiometry & composition.

What Happens

Pyrotechnic Combustion

A rapid reaction between oxidizing chemical salts and fuel. The quick conversion from salts to oxides prevents extended melting and creates stable metallic oxides / carbonates.

Product Collection

High purity, fine powders

The improved homogeneity enhances the ceramic’s properties and behavior. There are thousands of metallic oxide compositions produced by researchers around the world with unlimited compositional and doping possibilities.

Why it's Unique

Combustion synthesis overcomes the deficiencies of conventional solid state reaction by producing materials accurately, agilely, and quickly

  • Accuracy

    Solution-based precursor provides for atomic-scale mixing and infinitely-variable compositional control.

  • Agility

    Composition and stoichiometry can be easily adjusted in the precursor stage.

  • Speed

    Rapid turnaround and delivery of desired product compositions.
