A match is a simple and convenient means of producing fire under
controlled circumstances and on demand. It consists of a short wooden
or cardboard stick with a small head of flammable chemicals and
a striking surface.
The first match, the friction match, was invented by the English
chemist John Walker in 1827. Early work had been done by Robert
Boyle in the 1680s with phosphorus and sulfur, but his efforts had
not produced useful results. Walker discovered a mixture of antimony
(III) sulfide, potassium chlorate, gum, and starch could be ignited
by striking it against any rough surface. Walker called the matches
congreves, but the process was patented by Samuel Jones and the
matches were sold as lucifers. The early matches had a number of
problems - the flame was unsteady and the initial reaction was disconcertingly
violent, additionally the odour produced by the burning match was
unpleasant. Despite the problems the new matches were responsible
for a marked increase in the number of smokers.
1831 the Frenchman Charles Sauria added white phosphorus to remove
the smell. The new matches had to be kept in a airtight box but
were popular. Unfortunately those involved in the manufacture of
the new matches were afflicted with "phossy-jaw" and other
bone disorders, while there was enough white phosphorus in one pack
to kill a person. There was a vociferous campaign to ban these matches
once the dangers became known.
safety match was invented in 1844 by the Swede Gustaf Erik Pasch
and improved by Johan Edvard Lundström a decade later. The
safety is due to the separation of the combustible ingredients between
the match head and the special striking surface. Striking surface
- powdered glass and red phosphorus. Match head - antimony (III)
sulfide and potassium chlorate. The act of striking converts the
red phosphorus to white by friction heat, the white phosphorus ignites
and the ignition starts the combustion of the match head. The additional
safety was the replacement of white phosphorus with red phosphorus.
An American company developed a similar match using phosphorus sesquisulfide
and patented it in 1910.
development of a specialised matchbook with both matches and a striking
surface did not occur until 1890 with the American Joshua Pusey.
