Combustion synthesis (CS) is a technique for the synthesis of various nanopowders and complex compounds. This manuscript describes principles, some recent developments in CS and its exemplary applications: formation of silicon carbide nanofibers (SiCNFs) and transformation of synthetic and natural (Nepali dolomite) carbonates into graphene-related carbon nanostructures.
