CONTRIBUTIONS OF SOME CARBONYL, PHENOL, AND HYDROCARBON COMPONENTS TO DIESEL EXHAUST ODOR

The report covers initial findings in an experimental program to identify diesel exhaust odorants and determine their contributions to diesel odor. The approach was to isolate selected component groups from exhaust and to evaluate the contribution of each group to exhaust odor. The evaluated carbonyls, phenols, and hydrocarbons were found to account for about 20 pct of the total odor in exhaust from an indirect-injection engine during idle. For exhaust from the indirect-injection engine at no load, these compounds were found to have no significant levels of odor.
