Abstract:

The two articles reported relate to the study of nonhydrocarbon compounds occurring in petroleum products and causing primarily sediment formation in jet fuels under conditions of supersonic flight. In the first article, sediment originating from sulfur compounds is examined visually, while in the second article, the chemical structure of oxygen and nitrogen compounds is investigated on the basis of their IR spectra. It is generally known that nonhydrocarbon fuel impurities which contain heteroatoms i.e., S, O, or N are considered primarily responsible for thermal instability of fuels.
