Abstract:

Burning velocities, temperatures and burnt gas compositions were measured for ethylene-perchloric acid premixed flames containing from 2 to 24 times as much ethylene as is required for a stoichiometric mixture. Soot formation is observed for a limited range of mixture ratios. When the amount of ethylene exceeds three moles per mole of acid, the excess ethylene does not react but functions as a diluent. The results are compared with those for methane-rich flames and a mechanism is proposed. Author
