A low heating rate of 3[degrees]C/min was used during carbonization, which reduced the instantaneous mass and heat transfer during exothermic reaction (13).
This exothermic reaction blows the shell apart: It transforms the mixture of chemical powders into hot gases that expand suddenly.
In-situ Al/Ti[B.sub.2] composites were manufactured with an exothermic reaction process via KB[F.sub.4] and [K.sub.2]Ti[F.sub.6] salts.
The pattern may be explained by the difference in permeability of the evolved gases (it was found that [N.sub.2] is less permeable than and C[O.sub.2] with PE ([N.sub.2] = 2.7 c[m.sup.3] mm/s c[m.sup.2] cmHg and C[O.sub.2] = 35 c[m.sup.3] mm/s c[m.sup.2] cmHg) (2) or by the differences in endothermic and exothermic reaction, which is explained in the next section.
For instance, during the dissolution of modifiers containing elemental Sr, an exothermic reaction occurs if melt temperatures are near 1292F (700C).
These compounds tend to be very sensitive to curing conditions because of the exothermic reaction of sulfur and rubber.
During the exothermic reaction a considerable quantity of heat is developing so the reaction control is necessary.

The main reason for obtaining higher conversions at higher initiator concentration is that owing to the strong exothermic reaction, the temperature of the mixture rises above the set temperature of the oil bath (Fig.
