Shock synthesis is a process for preparing materials by shock compression of the reactants; it is a special kind of high-pressure and high-temperature chemical synthesis. All solids subjected to passage of a shock wave display physical and chemical changes, usually varying with the strength of the shock wave. These changes occur during the shock process, including both its compression and release portions. The process is uniquely different from quasi-static loading and can be related not only to the pressure and temperature effects but also to the rates at which the temperature and pressure rise and fall, and to the duration of pressure application. It is noteworthy that samples in the postshock condition contain both high-temperature phases and modified low-pressure phases. Shock compression generates high temperature because the process is adiabatic and produces an entropy increase in the system.
