Future jet engines will subject the fuel too much higher temperatures prior to combustion. The approaches that are actively being explored to meet the anticipated thermal fuel demands include the development of new fuels, the judicious use of fuel additives, and the implementation of engineering strategies. Engineering strategies include the use of new surface coatings in the fuel system and on board fuel deoxygenation in future jets. The use of both dispersants and phosphines can positively affect oxidative deposits. Efforts to provide both oxidative and pyrolytic stability for a JP-8 using a combination of additives and a surface coating were presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 228th ACS National Meeting (Philadelphia, PA 8/22-26/2004).
