Question
what will happen, when an acetone extracted rubber sample burn in nitrogen atmosphere and why carbon does not burn in nitrogen?

Answer
Be careful using nitrogen atmosphere with carbon or carbon compounds maybe present on the acetone extract!!
The reaction of nitrogen with carbon in the presence of metal trace can form cyanogen, that is a mortal gas. If metal are not present, the reaction will not occur.
