Technology request


Metallorganic species used as gasoline additives decompose undercombustion conditions. Conductive metal deposits can form on some surfacesunder some conditions. Little is known about the mechanism of metal depositformation and as a step toward preventing unwanted deposits a solid theoreticaland experimental foundation must be laid. Possible approaches might include,but are not limited to:

  • Instrumented internal combustion engines
  • Time off light reaction studies – Integrated GC/MS or MS/MS capabilities
  • Novel in-situ instrumental techniques
  • Computational Fluid Dynamic Simulations

TechnicalSpecifications / Specific technical requirements of the request

The desired partner will:

  • Have a prior background in the thermal and oxidative decomposition of metallorganic compounds
  • Possess appropriate spectroscopic and other analytical capabilities to detect and quantify gas-phase species
  • Present astrong record of elaborating gas-phase reaction mechanisms
  • Optionally have the ability to perform Computational Fluid Dynamics as needed to apply or test experimental findings

List of Keywords

  • Metals andAlloys
  • Furnacetechnology, construction of heating boilers
  • Combustion, Flames
