WEll ...i came across this question in my chemistry book which goes like.. Cooking a chicken with pure aluminium foil should be a dangerous activity. This is because the aluminium metal would react with the steam given off from the chicken to produce aluminium oxide and hydrogen....Bang !!.CAn u explain why this does not happen?

Well ithink that its because of the aluminium oxide coat which acts as a protective coat but im not really sure so can u just confirm it for me !!

Yeah, I think aluminium oxide will protect aluminium and stop the oxidation reaction between aluminium and oxygen.

yes that's right. the coat also has a very high melting temperature (I think like 1700 degrees) so no oven could make the aluminion burn in air. my old teacher was telling me how a missile in the Falklands hit an aluminium boat and creates a high enough temperature that it set the metal on fire.
