Abstract: The use of fluorine as an oxidizing agent in aluminum (Al)-based thermite reactions yields higher peak pressures and an increase in gas production compared with oxygen-containing oxidizers, such as molybdenum trioxide (MoO 3 ). Thus fluorination reactions have the potential to excel in situations that require high pressures and flame speeds. This study compares the combustion behaviors of Al/Teflon, Al/MoO 3 /Teflon, and Al/MoO 3 in an effort to determine the effects that the replacement of oxygen with fluori…
