•The IRS and EPA require certain fuels to be dyed for tax purposes, however dyes can be detrimental to fuel performance. It would be advantageous to remove the dyes prior to their use in critical aerospace applications. •Many dyes are unable to be removed from fuels using current technologies. •We used Hansen Solubility Parameters to develop an “ideal solvent” to extract these dyes from fuel. •A similar approach will also be applied to removal of sulfur compounds from fuels. Sulfur compounds in… Expand
