AbstractFive materials that contain nitrogen were burned in a flask at 800 degrees C, and the amounts of hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide produced were quantitatively analyzed by gas chromatography. The harmful effects of these products to the resulting atmosphere were then evaluated. The results vividly illustrate the potential danger of HCN to a fire environment when materials containing nitrogen are involved in fire.
