If you subject granite to a high pressure oxidizer can the
reaction be exothermal? I realize that the components of
granite are already oxidized but what if you can form a
multi-compound complex reaction which is exothermal i.e.
involving fe(II)=>fe(III) and less nobel metals pushed to
oxidation than more noble metals. If you look at this
video, there seems to be more energy than than the
reaction with iron wooll, is the rock itself reacting
VCaBUsCA Likewise, termite may create a lot of heat and
could be composed of oxides of different metalls. The
components SiO2, Al2O3, K2O, Na2O, CaO, FeO, Fe2O3,
MgO, TiO2, P2O5, MnO (see wikipedia for percentages)
gives plenty of room for reactions. Oxygen is cheap, and
can be separerad from the atmosphere using little extra
energy. So, can you use granite as a viable cheap energy

I think jan was trying to fix the in-body link.
