Comprehensive two dimensional GC has been utilized for analyzing complex mixtures of hydrocarbons of diesel feeds. Here, we evaluated 19 diesel feeds for their Paraffinic, Naphthenic and Aromatic group compositions dictating their flammability properties. Compositional ranges of feeds were as follows; Paraffins: 9.6-57.8%, Naphthenes: 7.9 - 38.5% & Aromatics: 10.5 - 82.3%. Diesel's flammability performance is estimated by thermodynamic conditions and rates of radical formation of hydrocarbon typ...
