  • Abstract We have studied flames doped with diacetylene and vinylacetylene to determine directly by experiment whether C4 + C2 reactions can be important sources of aromatics in combustion systems. Measurements were made of gas temperatures, major species mole fractions, C1 to C12 hydrocarbon mole fractions, and soot volume fractions in methane/air coflowing nonpremixed flames whose fuel was separately doped with diacetylene, vinylacetylene, propadiene, and acetylene. The dopant concentrations… CONTINUE READING
