PREPARATION AND PROPERTIES OF NANO-AL/MOO3 THERMITE
MoO3 nanobelts were prepared by a facile hydrothermal method. The as-synthesized MoO3 nanobelts were used to integrate with nano-Al powder through two different approaches, .mixing nano-Al with MoO3 nanobelts ultrasonicly and combining nano-Al with MoO3 self-assembly. The physical-chemical properties of the as-prepared samples were carefully characterized by SEM, TEM, XRD, TGA/ DSC and drop weight impact test. The results show that the morphology of MoO3 is highly influenced by the addi-tive sequence and the concentration of ammonium paramolybdate. The onset oxidation temperature of self-assembled nano-Al/MoO3 is 478.5 ℃. Otherwise, the onset oxidation temperatures of nano Al pow-der, nano-Al/hydrothermal MoO3 and nano-Al/referenced Fe2O3 prepared by ultrasonic method are 540.8 ℃, 484.2 ℃ and 514.8 ℃ respectively. And the total exothermic heats of self-assembled nano-Al/MoO3 in the temperature of TG experiments are about 6696.0 J/g, and 801.6 J/g, 577.4 J/g and 4080.2 J/g higher than that of nano-Al/commercial MoO3, nano-Al/hydrothermal MoO3 and nano-Al/referenced Fe2O3.
