Revisiting the kinetics and thermodynamics of the low-temperature oxidation pathways of alkanes: a case study of the three pentane isomers
(American Chemical Society, 2015-03-23)
This paper describes our developing understanding of low-temperature oxidation kinetics. We have investigated the ignition of the three pentane isomers in a rapid compression machine over a wide range of temperatures and ...
A detailed chemical kinetic modeling, ignition delay time and jet-stirred reactor study of methanol oxidation
A shock tube (ST) and a rapid compression machine (RCM) have been used to measure new ignition delay times for methanol oxidation over a wide range of pressures (2-50 atm) and equivalence ratios (0.5, 1.0, and 2.0). These ...
Autoignition of ethanol in a rapid compression machine
Ethanol is a renewable source of energy and significant attention has been directed to the development of a validated chemical kinetic mechanism for this fuel. The experimental data for the autoignition of ethanol in the ...
