  • A comprehensive combustion chemistry study of 2,5-dimethylhexane 

    Sarathy, S. Mani; Javed, Tamour; Karsenty, Florent; Heufer, Alexander; Wang, Weijing; Park, Sungwoo; Elwardany, Ahmed; Farooq, Aamir; Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Oehlschlaeger, Matthew A.; Dayma, Guillaume; Curran, Henry J.; Dagaut, Philippe (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-01-16)
    Iso-paraffinic molecular structures larger than seven carbon atoms in chain length are commonly found in conventional petroleum, Fischer-Tropsch (FT), and other alternative hydrocarbon fuels, but little research has been ...
  • A detailed chemical kinetic modeling, ignition delay time and jet-stirred reactor study of methanol oxidation 

    Burke, Ultan; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Burke, Sinead M.; Heufer, K. Alexander; Dagaut, Philippe; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-01-29)
    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 ...
  • An experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-hexane oxidation 

    Zhang, Kuiwen; Banyon, Colin; Togbé, Casimir; Dagaut, Philippe; Bugler, John; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2015-09-11)
    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 ...
  • An experimental and modeling study of diethyl carbonate oxidation 

    Nakamura, Hisashi; Curran, Henry J.; Córdoba, Angel Polo; Pitz, William J.; Dagaut, Philippe; Togbé, Casimir; Sarathy, S. Mani; Mehl, Marco; Agudelo, John R.; Bustamante, Felipe (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-01-19)
    Diethyl carbonate (DEC) is an attractive biofuel that can be used to displace petroleum-derived diesel fuel, thereby reducing CO2 and particulate emissions from diesel engines. A better understanding of DEC combustion ...
  • An experimental and modelling study of n-pentane oxidation in two jet-stirred reactors: The importance of pressure-dependent kinetics and new reaction pathways 

    Bugler, John; Rodriguez, Anne; Herbinet, Olivier; Battin-Leclerc, Frédérique; Togbé, Casimir; Dayma, Guillaume; Dagaut, Philippe; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-06-16)
    Two jet-stirred reactors (JSRs) coupled to gas chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques have been utilised to detect chemical species evolved during n -pentane oxidation at 1 and 10 atm, in the temperature range 500-1100 ...
