is charcoal a inflammable substance?if not then list the items which are inflammable????
The substances which have very low ignition temperature are called inflammable substances. These substances catch fire very easily .charcoal is not an inflammable substance. . LPG, petrol, and alcohol are some examples of inflammable substances. Hence, one should be very careful when using these substances.
Charcoal, when freshly prepared, can self-heat and catch fire. This is separate from hot spots which may have developed from the preparation of charcoal. Charcoal that has been exposed to air for a period of eight days is not considered to be hazardous. There are many factors involved, two being the type of wood and the temperature at which the charcoal was prepared. so charcoal is ainflammable substance. other inflameble substances are
3.Large cowmanurepiles can spontaneously combust during conditions of extreme heat.
4.Pistachionuts are highly flammable when stored in large quantities, and are prone to self-heating and spontaneous combustion.
5.Cotton and linen. When these materials come into contact with polyunsaturated vegetable oils (linseed, massage oils), bacteria slowly decompose the materials, producing heat. If these materials are stored in a way so the heat cannot escape, the heat build-up increases the rate of decomposition and thus the rate of heat build-up increases. Once ignition temperature is reached, combustion occurs with oxidizers present (oxygen).
6.Pyriteoxidation is often the cause of coal spontaneous ignition in oldMine tailings.

Combustible substance cannot catch fire as long as its temperature is lower than its ignition temperature. Charcoal is an example of combustible substance.
