The ability of a reaction wave to propagate in a porous medium without the aid of filtration is demonstrated. It is shown that one possible mechanism of propagation is that the wave is driven by diffusion of oxidizer from the environment. Another possible mechanism describes wave which propagate by consuming the oxidizer initially stored in the pores of the sample.
