A visible laser with chemical pumping in metal oxidation reactions is examined theoretically. Metal atoms are formed through the evaporation of finely dispersed particles by external radiation in an oxidizer atmosphere. For a series of specific reactions, it is shown that the rate of the chemical pumping of the excited electron states of oxides can be as high as 10 to the 24th - 10 to the 25th per cu cm s. At the same time, an inversion can be achieved, with a light amplification coefficient of 0.01-1 per cm.
