The Concise Encyclopedia of Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis: History, Theory, Technology, and Products helps students and scientists understand the fundamental concepts behind self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). SHS-based technologies provide valuable alterations to traditional methods of material fabrication, such as powder metallurgy, conventional and force sintering, casting, extrusion, high isostatic pressure sintering, and others. The book captures the whole spectrum of the chemistry, physics, reactions, materials, and processes of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis.
This book is an indispensable resource not only to scientists working in the field of SHS, but also to researchers in multidisciplinary fields such as chemical engineering, metallurgy, material science, combustion, explosion, and the chemistry of solids.
- Written by high-level experts in the field from 20 different countries, along with editors who are founders of the field
- Covers 169 topics in the field of SHS
- Features new phenomena, such as acoustics and high-energy reactions in combustion synthesis
- Provides an overview of many aspects of the constructive application of the combustion phenomenon, for example, in the fabrication of advanced materials

Prof. Inna P. Borovinskaya is one of the authors of the scientific discovery “The phenomenon of wave localization of auto-inhibited solid phase reactions” (“The Phenomenon of Solid Flame”) which gave rise to the development of the scientific direction of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis. In 1987, together with the group headed by A.G. Merzhanov, she started working in the newly established Institute of Structural Macrokinetics and Materials Science (ISMAN). The laboratory of SHS problems and some other laboratories were transformed into the SHS Research Center headed by Prof. I.P. Borovinskaya. Her research interests include chemistry and experimental diagnostics of mechanisms of SHS processes, material science and technology of SHS products, and development of advanced inorganic materials. Among the remarkable results achieved by Prof. I.P. Borovinskaya and her co-authors during the fruitful work on the subject are those on combustion mechanism of metals in nitrogen, fundamental regularities in filtration combustion of porous solids in reactive gas, synthesis of nitrides (including new compounds and phases), new displays of unstable combustion, for example, front auto-oscillation and spin waves, chemical routes of SHS reactions, development of SHS technologies of simple and composite refractory compounds, production of nitride ceramics in SHS gas-static reactors, forced SHS densification of hard alloys, etc. Some of her results were realized on an industrial scale in Russia and abroad. Prof. I.P. Borovinskaya is the author of more than 200 scientific works and the holder of over 100 patents. She is a member of the Academic Council of ISMAN and some Academic Councils of other research institutes and a member of editorial boards of journals. She is an honorary professor of Wuhan Polytechnic Institute (1983) and Harbin Institute of Technology (1995). In 2002 she became an academician of the World Academy of Ceramics (WAC). In 1996 she was awarded the National Prize of the Russian Federation and in 1999 received the Order of Friendship for the discovery and development of SHS. In 1980 she became a laureate of the National Prize of Armenia for her active participation in various directions of SHS and its industrial implementation. Prof. I.P. Borovinskaya was awarded the International Ceramic Prize – 2008 for fundamental studies in SHS as well as other medals and honorary awards of various countries.
