Chemistry and Pharmacology
Ethane oxidation in jet-stirred reactor has recently been investigated at high temperature (800-1200 K) in the pressure range 1-10 atm and molecular species (H2, CO, CO2, CH4, C2H2, C2H4, C2H6) concentration profiles were obtained by probe sampling and GC analysis. Ethane oxidation was modeled using a comprehensive kinetic reaction mechanism including the most recent findings concerning the kinetics of the reactions involved in the oxidation of C1—C4 hydrocarbons. The proposed mechanism is able to reproduce experimental data obtained in our high-pressure jet stirred reactor and ignition delay times measured in shock tube in the pressure range 1-13 atm, for temperatures extending from 800 to 2000 K and equivalence ratios of 0.1 to 2. It is also able to reproduce atoms concentrations (H,O) measured in shock tube at ≈2 atm. The same detailed kinetic mechanism can also be used to model the oxidation of methane, ethylene, propyne, and allene in similar conditions.
