Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This overview compiles the on-going research in Europe to enlarge and deepen the understanding of the reaction mechanisms and pathways associated with the combustion of an increased range of fuels. Focus is given to the formation of a large number of hazardous minor pollutants and the inability of current combustion models to predict the

Synopsis:

This book describes the reactive chemistry of minor pollutants within extensively validated detailed mechanisms for traditional fuels, and also for innovative surrogates, describing the complex chemistry of new, environmentally important bio-fuels.

About the Author

Dr. Frédérique Battin-Leclerc is the head of the "Kinetics of Combustion" team of LRGP-Nancy. She joined CNRS in Nancy just after getting her PhD (1990) from INPL-Nancy (France) and was a post-doctoral fellow at AEA Technology
