Quote: Speebs said: Toxic compounds formed by Oxidation or burning of benzene in jet engine? Benzene + oxygen goes to carbon dioxide and water vapor. C6H6 + (15/2)O2 ----> 6CO2 + 3H2O Never realized that carbon dioxide and water vapor were toxic chemicals. From an environmental chemist.
1. Jet fuel is not benzene. 2. Fuel combustion in an engine is not complete - you don't get to equilibrium. Various decomposition intermediates and side products are produced. From another chemist.
