Effects of Aromatics on Soot Formation

Effects and mechanisms of aromatics on soot formation were investigated using the Pyrolyzer-GC system, which can be heated up to 1400°C. In this result, the amount of soot was dependent on aromatic type when oxygen concentration was 20% (air excess ratio0.6). With paraffin-fuel and diaromatic-blended fuel, the greater part of soot was assumed to be produced through acenaphthylene-path. The reason why the amount of soot was increased with triaromatic-blended may be that soot formation through pyrene-path was accelerated.
