The regime of combustion of aluminium microparticles involving oxidant molecules is analyzed if heating of these particles leads to evaporation of aluminium atoms from the particle surface which form aluminium nanoclusters and they, in turn, partake in chemical reactions. It is shown that the chemical process cannot provide the particle heating for this regime, and it results from particle heating by an external field of gas discharge.
