Chemicals Burning in Oxygen: long exposure imagesby Cyberchemist on Flickr.
TOP:[left] Charcoal burning brilliantly in oxygen.[right] Previously ignited zinc dust burning rapidly in oxygen, forming zinc oxide.
MIDDLE:Previously ignited sulfur burns rapidly with a bright blue flame when lowered into oxygen, forming acidic sulfur dioxide and a little sulfur trioxide.
BOTTOM:[left] Ammonia & oxygen mixture, produced by bubbling oxygen through concentrated ammonia solution, burning explosively with a squeaky pop, forming chiefly nitrogen and steam. Ammonia does not burn readily in air.[right] Steel wool burning brilliantly in oxygen, accompanied with a crackling sound.
