The primary objectives of this project were to explore experimentally and theoretically the unimolecular decomposition of prototype hydrocarbon surrogates relevant to the combustion of JP-8 and JP-10 jet fuel. For JP-8, these are n-decane C10H22 and n-dodecane C12H26 to simulate then-alkane fraction of JP-8. JP-10 represents principally a single-component-fuel exo-tetrahydrodicyclopentadieneC10H16. This endeavor presents a major challenge as no study has been conducted to date, in which the decomposition mechanisms of these surrogates and the overall spectrum of newly formed open and closed shell molecules have been explored on line and in situ under combustion relevant conditions over a broad range of parameters pressure, temperature.
