Aluminum foil is just one of many applications of a process that started with a simple but ingenious experiment.
The first successful use of the process was a makeshift bomb, but it was quickly discovered that a homemade version worked too.
A team of researchers from the University of Illinois, the University at Buffalo and the University in Buffalo and Cornell University and a handful of other universities in the U.S. and around the world went looking for the perfect material to make a bomb.
In a process known as pyrolysis, they cooled the material to -196 degrees Fahrenheit and then used an infrared thermometer to measure its internal temperature.
After that, they heated it to around -450 degrees Fahrenheit to get the right ratio of iron and aluminum.
That created the perfect foil, the researchers report in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A. The team then heated the foil in a large dish, which had to be kept in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (185 degrees Celsius) for at least 10 minutes.
When the dish was heated, they were able to extract a high concentration of iron from the foil.
It is the first chemical reaction to yield a substance that could be used as a bomb, said Dr. Eric Schlosser, one of the lead researchers on the study.
The researchers found that the foil had a number of advantages over other materials.
It was strong enough to be used in a bomb in the same way that a thermos can be used to produce a liquid or a gas.
The metal used to make the foil, a combination of aluminum and iron, was much stronger than the metal used in traditional explosives.
In addition, the tin oxide, which was present in the material but wasn’t present in any of the other components, could be turned into a bomb-forming compound by heating it to -460 degrees Fahrenheit.
The tin oxide has been used to coat guns, for example, and is now used in explosives.
The tin oxide can be easily separated from the aluminum oxide in the dish.
It can be separated by stirring it vigorously, so that it will settle out.
The team found that their foil worked well when mixed with a mix of aluminum oxide and titanium oxide, a material that is typically used in other types of explosives.
When mixed with other materials, such as polyethylene and carbon fiber, the mixture was able to hold the bomb’s shape for about three minutes.
However, when the foil was coated with other types, such the aluminum-silicon alloy or aluminum oxide-silicone alloy, the bombs became much more fragile.
They were more susceptible to cracks.
The scientists say that this is the reason why pyrolic acid, which is commonly used in making fireworks, can be useful in making bombs.
They believe that the tin-oxygen alloy used in the bomb would be ideal for making pyrochlorine, a chemical that is commonly present in explosives but can’t be produced with conventional explosives.
They said the research should help scientists better understand the properties of bomb materials, and they hope that their work will help scientists design more bombs.
“I think it’s going to be very useful,” Schlossers said.
“You can’t just say it’s just a novelty bomb.
This is a new way to use bombs, and it’s something that you can make yourself, too.”
There are many other materials that you could make, but you can’t get them to work like this,” he added.
