Zhang, Kuiwen, Lokachari, Nitin, Ninnemann, Erik, Khanniche, Sarah, Green, William H., Curran, Henry J., Vasu, Subith S., Pitz, William J. (2019). An experimental, theoretical, and modeling study of the ignition behavior of cyclopentanone. Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, 37(1), 657-665. doi: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.proci.2018.06.097
The ignition delay times of cyclopentanone in air were measured using a high pressure shock tube (HPST) and a rapid compression machine (RCM) over the temperature range of 794-1368 K at P = 15 and 30 bar and at equivalence ratios of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0. To provide more insight into the oxidation of cyclopentanone, CO time-histories during cyclopentanone oxidation in a shock tube at high temperatures and various pressures were also measured. In addition, quantum chemistry calculations have been performed to calculate the reaction rates for the olefin +HO2 center dot elimination reactions of fuel peroxyl radical decomposition reactions, which were suggested as critical reaction pathways for the oxidation of cyclopentanone in previous studies. Based on these experimental and theoretical investigations, a detailed kinetic model has been developed and validated using the experimental data. The model has satisfactorily reproduced the ignition delay times in the RCM and shock tube, and CO histories in the shock tube over the wide range of temperature, pressure and equivalence ratio. Rate of production and sensitivity analyses were performed to determine the important reaction pathways and critical reactions that affect the predicted reactivity of cyclopentanone at the condition investigated.
