Abstract

One of the conclusions of a recent article by Egan et al. [J. Appl. Phys. 115, 084903 (2014)] was that since the melt-dispersion mechanism (MDM) of the reaction of aluminum nanoparticles was not observed in their experiments, this mechanism is very unlikely. Our main point here is to demonstrate that, in fact, these experiments do not disprove the MDM.
