Abstract The kinetics and mechanism of the thermal decomposition of pure n-heptane at high conversions were investigated at temperatures of 660-780 ° C and reaction times of 0.40–1.02 s. The conversion data were well represented by a first-order kinetic law with a pre-exponential factor of 5.88 × 1010 s−1 and an activation energy of 206.1 kJ mol−1. The inadequacy of the Rice-Kossiakoff theory in accounting satisfactorily for the formation of the products of n-heptane pyrolysis has been… Expand
