Experimental and kinetic modeling study of the shock tube ignition of a large oxygenated fuel: tri-propylene glycol mono-methyl ether
Tri-propylene glycol monomethyl ether (TPGME) is an important oxygenated fuel additive that can be used to reduce soot in diesel engines. However, a validated chemical kinetic model that incorporates the low- to high-temperature ...
An experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-hexane oxidation
Ignition delay times for n-hexane oxidation have been measured in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at stoichiometric conditions and at 15 bar. Due to the high reactivity of n-hexane and non-ideal experimental effects ...
Decomposition studies of isopropanol in a variable pressure flow reactor
(Oldenbourg Verlag, 2015-04-01)
Alternatives to traditional petroleum derived transportation fuels, particularly alcohols, have been investigated increasingly over the last 5 years. Isopropanol has received little attention despite bridging the gap between ...
Experimental and kinetic modeling study of 2-methyl-2-butene: allylic hydrocarbon kinetics
(American Chemical Society, 2015-03-20)
Two experimental studies have been carried out on the oxidation of 2-methyl-2-butene, one measuring ignition delay times behind reflected shock waves in a stainless steel shock tube, and the other measuring fuel, intermediate, ...
Critical evaluation of thermochemical properties of C-1-C-4 species: updated group-contributions to estimate thermochemical properties
(AIP Publishing, 2015-01-05)
A review of literature on enthalpies of formation and molar entropies for alkanes, alkenes, alcohols, hydroperoxides, and their associated radicals has been compiled and critically evaluated. By comparing literature values, ...
