The Effect of Oxygenated Fuel Properties on Mechanism of Inhibition in Particulate Matter

It is reported that the particulate matter in exhaust gas is reduced when oxygenated agents are added to diesel fuel, but the inhibition mechanism is not established.
To explain this mechanism, we investigate the amounts of particulate formation and analyze thermal cracking and condensation polymerization components with a fluid reaction tube apparatus and nitrogen atmosphere. As a result of experiment, it became clear that inhibition mechanism of fine grain was different by fuel properties.
