Incomplete cobustion is where there is not enough oxygen present to form carbon dioxide and water. As a result, carbon monoxide and sometimes carbon is produced. Carbon monoxide is dangerous, as this bonds to the haemoglobin in the red blood cells and prevents oxygen from being transported round the body.
