When chemicals react a number of things can happen:  two liquids can form a solid, a gas can be produced, things can change color, OR materials can combust. This video shows what happens when we place an organic substance (a material with a "carbon backbone" like sugar, or wood) into a particular hot and liquefied "oxidizer". The results are extremely exothermic, over 1,500 degrees F exothermic.
