EFFECT OF FUEL ADDITIVES STUDY
Studies were carried out on the optimization of a chemiluminescent NO detector. This detector has been used to study the effect of N containing fuel additive combustion using a gas chromatographic (GC) technique. Progress so far indicates N selective GC detection down to 1.6 ng of diethyl nitrosamine (approximately 0.5 ppm in a 1 ml gas sample). Similar data are obtained for amines. The detector has at least two orders of magnitude more sensitivity currently not realized due to problems with the GC columns. Preliminary studies were made of rapid determination of total N in gasoline, and of combustion products in a flat flame propane-air burner.
