Abstract:

The work concerns the chemical composition of hydrocarbon motor fuels and the chemical changes that occur from the time the fuels are produced until they are burned in the engine. Chapter One discusses both the hydrocarbon composition of fuels and the non-hydrocarbon ingredients. Chapter two deals with chemical changes during storage and in engine fuel systems. Chapter Three treats problems of chemical stabilization chiefly, use of additives. Chapter Four reviews methods for determining the chemical composition of fuels. Chapter Five gives methods for estimating the tendency of fuels toward change. The work is intended for engineers and technicians involved in all phases of production and use of various types of motor fuels, as well as for scientists in petrochemical and refining work. Author
