The Chemistry of Modern Flight
Auto ignition temperature: the temperature at which a material catches fire spontaneously.
Flash point: the lowest temperature a flammable liquid can form an ignitable mixture with air.
Open air burning temperature: the temperature at which a material burns in open air.
Antioxidants: a chemical that reduces the rate of of an oxidation reaction.
Gumming: the process that occurs when a material becomes relatively more viscous (i.e. more gum like).
