Oxidation and condensation products of a standard jet fuel at 190-200C have been concentrated and fractionated to give materials of average molecular weight of 300 by 1 precipitation from pentane and 2 gel permeation chromatography. Heating fuel with stainless steel wool and oxygen at 200C has given insoluble deposits that can be removed only by heating in air. A deposit from a simulated fuel manifold has been analyzed. Some contemporary work on fuel stability has been reviewed and recommendations for further work toward a useful stability test are presented. Modified author abstract
