Thermic

thermic may refer to one or more of these topics related to heat:

  • a past synonym for thermal (also, thermics was a synonym for thermodynamics)
  • the thermic effect of food (TEF)
  • the thermic reaction of skin, a topic of 19th century hydrotherapy, but the phrase is also used more recently in other contexts PubMed
  • thermic reaction may refer to a triggered change in body temperature
  • thermic reaction or thermic process can refer to a chemical reaction that may turn out to be exothermic or endothermic
  • the suffix -thermic, as in the following list of thermic inorganic reactions involving chemical reduction. (Highly thermic reactions are those requiring or producing a large amount of heat.)
    • Aluminothermic reaction, the thermite reaction being a prominent example
    • Calciothermic reaction
    • Carbothermic reaction
    • Silicothermic reaction
  • thermic lance
  • thermic component, thermic composition, thermic effect or thermic reaction may refer to a near-explosive property
  • thermic reaction or thermic binding can refer to biochemical processes PubMed
