The goal of this program was to determine the chemistry of deposit formation on hot parts of diesel and jet turbine engines and thus to predict and prevent deposit formation. These deposits are assumed to come mostly from soluble gum formed on storage. The fuels used for the study were distilled at low pressure and stored under nitrogen and refrigeration. We measured rates of oxygen absorption from air, R sub 0 and total gum formation, r sub g at 130 C without initiator and at 100 with added t-Bu202. The gum measured was mostly or wholly soluble in the fuel insoluble gum, if any, was a minor product. Author
