Chemistry Of An M-R-E


How does it work, again?


What other "things"-sp? work through similar chemistry?

sterilization and inert atmosphere? what kind of chemistry are you referring to?

mre this is what comes up just a guess
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flameless_ration_heater
related to Meal, Ready-to-Eat – commonly known as the MRE
is this what you mean
it contains a Flameless ration heater

this is the only chemistry I could think of
A flameless ration heater
Iron and magnesium metals, when suspended in an electrolyte, form a galvanic cell that can generate electricity. When water is added to a ration heater, it dissolves the salt to form a salt-water electrolyte, thereby turning each particle of magnesium and iron into a tiny battery. Because the magnesium and iron particles are in contact, they become thousands of tiny short-circuited batteries, which quickly burn out, producing heat in a process the patent holders call "supercorroding galvanic cells".

Here is how the chemistry works

A flameless ration heater
A flameless ration heater, or FRH, is a water-activated exothermic chemical heater included with meals, ready-to-eat (MREs), used to heat the food.
The ration heater contains finely powdered magnesium metal, alloyed with a small amount of iron, and table salt. To activate the reaction, a small amount of water is added, and the boiling point of water is quickly reached as the reaction proceeds

so Yttrium2, are you asking for chemistry based on exothermic reactions?
oh boy the list is long

Thanks for returning, Yttrium2.
Since you have not clarified your question, I am sending this to the underworld.

Feel free to try again: this time with words. And preferably words with meaning. ;)
