Abstract

One of the most important factors controlling the thermal stability of jet fuels is their chemical composition. The composition and structure of fuels depend, to a great extent, on the available feedstock from which it was produced. The source of the future fuels may include not only petroleum, but also coal liquids and shale oil. We have found that coal- and petroleum-derived jet fuels have significantly different chemical composition. The objectives of the present work are to study the high temperature thermal stability and pyrolytic degradation behavior of two JP-8 type jet fuels derived from coal (JP-8C) and petroleum (JP-8P). The comparative stressing in combination with GC-MS analysis seeks to clarify the effects of chemical composition on thermal stability of jet fuels, and to identify the thermally stable and unstable fuel components.
