I need more (upto5) example of THERMIT REACTIONS...
Asked by shamim.ayanahmad | 5th Dec, 2017, 09:56: PM
The thermite reaction is the reaction of metal oxide with reducing agent aluminium in order to obtain the metal. These displacement reactions are highly exothermic hence Known as thermite reactions.
The highly reactive metals can be used as reducing agents because they can displace metals of lower reactivity from their compounds.
For example, in order to obtain manganese, its oxide is heated with aluminium powder.
3 MnO2 + 4Al → 3 Mn + 2 Al2O3 + heat
Similarly ore of iron,i.e., haematite Fe2O3
Fe2O3 + 2 Al → 2 Fe + Al2O3 + heat

- Que:- How is the aluminium metal extracted? (In the bauxite ore it occures as hydrated aluminium oxide ,so also explain the steps we need to follow before electrolytic reduction)
- Both Al2O3.2 H2O (bauxite) and Na3AlF6(Cryolite) contain aluminium metal in them. But bauxite is used to extract aluminium metal but not Cryolite. Why?
- what is calcination?
- What is rusting
- what is metallurgy
- What are the uses of bronze and brass alloys? (State with reason)
- Difference between electrolytic reduction and electrolytic refining.
- Why does lmpure copper dissolve but not pure copper in acidified copper sulphate solution during electrolytic refining of copper
- By which process metal can be obtained from metal oxide?
- describe the use of aluminium asc reducing agent for reduction of metal oxides .. give the equations involved
