Self-propagating, gas-producing exothermic reactions involving redox compounds/mixtures have been used to prepare a variety of nanocrystalline oxides and composites which find applications as sensors for detecting noxious gases like CO, HC and NOx and catalysts for their conversion to CO2, H2O and N2. Other applications of these nanomaterials are in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), immobilization of nuclear waste (synthetic rock) and solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) materials used in the generation of clean energy using hydrogen/natural gas.
