This paper attempts to expand mechanistic understanding of the fundamental chemistry involved in jet fuel thermal oxidative deposit formation. The proposed mechanisms are a synthesis of ideas and results from the fuel community at large; a few new experiments are also reported. In addition, it is suggested that the available literature is consistent with similar chemistry for deposit formation for both storage and thermal oxidative degradation for middle distillates in general.
