I am confused....I am not an expert in any sense, but basic chemistry will require oxygen to be present for any such combustion, even in the oxidation reduction sesne, there is no O2 in a decent oxidation state to provide any kind of ignition.

Shurik, if your point is accurate (I do not mean to get caught up in this 'debate', I would love to see some redox calculations to support it! For it to occur at 280C and 200 PSI gauge pressure, it has to have a gnarly ln(Q) term, if the typical spontaneity calculations hold( I again, have no experience in real world )
