But often there is still a lack of knowledge regarding potential exothermic reaction of chemical compounds.
This is due to exothermic reaction of sodium hydroxide with the adsorbed water.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) was used to measure the heat evaluated by the exothermic reaction of the PAN fibers.
That's called an exothermic reaction. The energy is released in three forms: heat, light, and sound.
Their assumption is based on the relative simplicity and reduced time/temperature history of the cyclic technology, which requires no exothermic reaction or net change in the chemistry of the resin matrix in contrast with a thermoset system.
The purpose of this paper is to present the results of fabrication of in-situ Al/Ti[B.sub.2] composites using the exothermic reaction between metallic melt and salts containing boron (from KBF4) and titanium (from [K.sub.2]Ti[F.sub.6]).
However, the organic peroxide decomposition is a highly exothermic reaction (for instance, the heat evolved in the decomposition of pure benzoyl peroxide measured by DSC is 400 J/g [7]) and different amounts of initiator can give different values for [DELTA][H.sub.R].
The melt undergoes an exothermic reaction in the furnace before it is drawn up into the investment shell.
