What is thermit reaction? Give examples
Asked by | 21st Feb, 2008, 06:11: AM
Thermite process is a reduction of metal oxide with highly reactive metal like sodium and aluminium. These reactions are highly exothermic. Iron oxide when reacted with aluminium gives iron and aluminium oxide and large amount of heat which meltsthe metal which is reduced.
Al +Fe2O3Al2O3 +Fe+ 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
