  • Reducing Property
  • Reaction with Strong Oxidising Agent

1. Combustion:

All allotropes of carbon burn in excess air or oxygen to produce carbon (IV) oxide. 

\( \scriptsize C_{(s)} \: + \: O_{2(g)} \: \rightarrow \: \underset{carbon(IV)oxide}{CO_{2(g)}} \)

Charcoal Fire:

Charcoal is used extensively for making fire in Nigeria. As the charcoal burns, carbon (IV) oxide and carbon (II) oxide are formed at various levels inside the charcoal pot.

From the above diagram at level A, air is plentiful and the charcoal burns to produce carbon (IV) oxide.

C(s) + O2(g) → CO2(g)
