The possible effectiveness of sulfur-containing fuel additives as contrail suppressents was investigated by analysis of sulfur trioxide concentration in the exhaust from a model combustor. This specially constructed combustor simulated turbojet operation at 40,000 feet. Exhaust was analyzed by scrubbing a known fraction through cold isopropanolwater and titrating total sulfate with barium perchlorate.
