Chapter 6 in the Russian book by E. T. Denisov and G. I. Kovalev, Oxidation and Stabilization of Jet Fuels, is reviewed. It deals with the effects of many metal and alloy surfaces on gum and deposit formation from a stable jet fuel T-6 produced by hydrodearomatization. The metals affect oxidations mostly by assisting or retarding the initiation of a subsequent homogeneous oxidation. The effects of the metals and the differences among them are small to moderate. Originator-furnished key words include Oxidation, gum, deposits, hydrocarbons, jet fuels, metals, metal surfaces.
