Abstract:

This report summarises progress made on three main areas 1 Further experimental studies of the hydrogen-oxygen and deuterium-oxygen reaction, together with the development of computer programs to interpret the results. 2 Studies of the addition of ethane, propane, n- and isobutane, neopentane, tetraethylsilane and tetramethyl silane to slowly reacting hydrogen-oxygen mixtures. 3 The oxidation of acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde and butyraldehyde in aged boric-acid-coated vessels in the temperature range 400 - 500C. These studies have provided valuable information on the mechanism of the oxidation, and on the reactions of H atoms, OH and HO2 radicals, and alkyl radicals. Author
