Safety matches are at the very core of modern civilization, playing an unnoticed but vastly important part in everyday human activities since the middle of the 19th century. Although the general public is hardly aware of the strict and complex requirements that matches are expected to meet, it takes careful chemical engineering to control the match microstructure in a way that guarantees safe and reliable operation. In this contribution we summarize results obtained in this field by the cooperation of a match manufacturer and two Hungarian universities.
