Conclusions 1 Aliphatic cercaptanes, contained in fuel as a result of long heating at 150 degrees, cause sharp corrosion of bronze and formation of tars and insoluble residue. It is necessary to reduce the mercaptan content in fuel. 2 The investigated sulfurous compounds, by their corrosive effect on metals and the effect of tar and residue formation processes in fuels during their heating to 150 degrees, are divided into the following descending series mercaptanes, disulfides, aliphatic sulfides, aromatic sulfides, thiophanes.
