Abstract

Phenomena such as varied light emissions, sound, burning rates, heats of reaction and reaction products occur during inorganic redox reactions. The peculiarity of these redox reactions is that they take place as solid–solid, solid–liquid or solid–gas state reactions and not as redox reactions in a solvent as normally postulated in inorganic chemistry. By variation of different parameters such as the reducing agent, the oxidizer, the oxygen balance or the particle size, it is possible to create a wide range of the above-mentioned effects.
