Combustion chemistry of enols: possible ethenol precursors in flames.


Before the recent discovery that enols are intermediates in many flames, they appeared in no combustion models. Furthermore, little is known about enols' flame chemistry. Enol formation in low-pressure flames takes place in the preheat zone, and its precursors are most likely fuel species or the early products of fuel decomposition. The OH + ethene reaction… (More)
