      Zhou, Chong-Wen; Li, Yang; O'Connor, Eoin; Somers, Kieran P.; Thion, Sébastien; Keesee, Charles; Mathieu, Olivier; Petersen, Eric L.; DeVerter, Trent A.; Oehlschlaeger, Matthew A.; Kukkadapu, Goutham; Sung, Chih-Jen; Alrefae, Majed; Khaled, Fathi; Farooq, Aamir; Dirrenberger, Patricia; Glaude, Pierre-Alexandre Glaude; Battin-Leclerc, Frédérique; Santner, Jeffrey; Ju, Yiguang; Held, Timothy; Haas, Francis M.; Dryer, Frederick L.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-03-17)
      Isobutene is an important intermediate in the pyrolysis and oxidation of higher-order branched alkanes, and it is also a component of commercial gasolines. To better understand its combustion characteristics, a series of ...
    • An experimental and chemical kinetic modeling study of 1,3-butadiene combustion: Ignition delay time and laminar flame speed measurements 

      Zhou, Chong-Wen; Li, Yang; Burke, Ultan; Banyon, Colin; Somers, Kieran P.; Ding, Shuiting; Khan, Saadat; Hargis, Joshua W.; Sikes, Travis; Mathieu, Olivier; Petersen, Eric L.; AlAbbad, Mohammed; Farooq, Aamir; Pan, Youshun; Zhang, Yingjia; Huang, Zuohua; Lopez, Joseph; Loparo, Zachary; Vasu, Subith S.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2018-09-10)
      Ignition delay times for 1,3-butadiene oxidation were measured in five different shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at thermodynamic conditions relevant to practical combustors. The ignition delay times ...
    • An extensive experimental and modeling study of 1-butene oxidation 

      Li, Yang; Zhou, Chong-Wen; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2017-04-13)
      In this study, a series of ignition delay time (IDT) experiments of 1-butene were performed in a high-pressure shock tube (HPST) and in a rapid compression machine (RCM) under conditions of relevance to practical combustors. ...
    • The oxidation of 2-butene: A high pressure ignition delay, kinetic modeling study and reactivity comparison with isobutene and 1-butene 

      Li, Yang; Zhou, Chong-Wen; Somers, Kieran P.; Zhang, Kuiwen; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-06-16)
      Butenes are intermediates ubiquitously formed by decomposition and oxidation of larger hydrocarbons (e.g. alkanes) or alcohols present in conventional or reformulated fuels. In this study, a series of novel igni-tion delay ...
    • Theoretical kinetics analysis for Ḣ atom addition to 1,3-Butadiene and related reactions on the Ċ4H7 potential energy surface 

      Li, Yang; Klippenstein, Stephen J.; Zhou, Chong-Wen; Curran, Henry J. (American Chemical Society, 2017-09-08)
      The oxidation chemistry of the simplest conjugated hydrocarbon, 1,3-butadiene, can provide a first step in understanding the role of polyunsaturated hydrocarbons in combustion and, in particular, an understanding of their ...
