The effects of fuel properties on the characteristics of the PM particle were investigated by using several experimental PM samples. The PM samples were obtained through the thermal cracking reactor by using typical fuels, two commercial diesel fuels containing aromatics (JIS-2, Class 1) and some paraffin-based, gas-to-liquid (GTL) fuels with different distillation temperatures. In this report, it was found than an aromatic content, carbon number and carbon number distribution of the fuel have a profound effect on the characteristics of the PM by using some analyses such as XRD, thermal and spectroscopic methods.
