KINETICS AND MECHANISM OF ELEMENTARY CHEMICAL PROCESSES OF IMPORTANCE IN COMBUSTION

Objective

HYDROCARBON PYROLYSIS AND SOOT FORMATION WILL BE STUDIED IN PRESSURIZED AND GASEOUS FLAMES AND SPRAY FLAME CHARACTERIZATION OF EARLY SOOT FORMATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF PAH (POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS) IN THE DIFFUSION FLAME.

HYDROCARBON PYROLYSIS AND SOOT FORMATION IS BEING STUDIED IN PREMIXED AND DIFFUSION GASEOUS FLAMES USING UV LIGHT SCATTERING TO CHARACTERIZE SOOT FORMATION AND PARTICLE GROWTH. FLUORESCENCE MEASUREMENTS WILL ALSO BE MADE INSIDE DIFFUSION FLAMES. COLLABORATION WITH UNIVERSITIES OF PISA, GOETTINGEN AND MULHOUSE ON THIS WORK.
