Abstract
The study of the interfacial reactions between carbon fibres and aluminium has been performed using a mass spectrometer. Analysis of the gaseous species evolved by the fibres during heat treatment show that interfacial reactions occur between some of these gases and aluminium. The products of these reactions are aluminium carbide and aluminium oxides. The aluminium carbide produced during heat treatment has been quantitatively measured by determining the amount of methane produced upon the hydrolysis of the carbide.
