Initiation of combustion of a stoichiometric propane–oxygen mixture in a bubble located in an electrolyte near a dielectric or metallic wall is performed in experiments. It is demonstrated that combustion in the bubble is initiated by an electric explosion-breakdown of a thin electrolyte layer along the bubble boundary.
