||Hexamine was combusted under varying amounts of oxygen in a modified Parr combustion bomb. The products were collected and analysed by gas chromatography, ion chromatography, ion-selective electrodes, and colorimetric tests. The primary products were nitrogen and carbon dioxide, with small amounts of nitrogen monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and ammonia. Other possible products such as hydrogen cyanide, dinitrogen monoxide, and carbon monoxide were not detected. Experiments conducted in larger concentrations of oxygen showed an increase in the amounts of nitrogen monoxide and nitrogen dioxide and a decrease in the amount of ammonia relative to experiments conducted in smaller concentrations of oxygen.
