Fuel-rich perchloric acid flames containing binary mixtures of hydrocarbons methane-ethane, methane-ethylene and ethane-ethylene as fuels were studied by sampling the burnt gas products for a range of mixtures of each pair of fuels. It was shown that there is selective consumption of one member of each fuel pair and that the order of increasing resistance to attack is ethane ethylene methane. Approximate ratios of the rate constants for the attack on the fuels are deduced and compared with the literature values for hydrogen, oxygen and chlorine atom and hydroxyl radical attack on the same hydrocarbons. It is concluded that the results provide additional support for a mechanism involving chlorine-oxygen species. Author
