Abstract

•Boron has a remarkable theoretical heat of reaction with air.•In boron loaded combustor saturation of boron oxide vapor may take place.•Condensation of boron oxide on the boron particles causes extinguishment.•Thermodynamic blocking of reaction may cause poor combustion efficiency in ramjets.
