Long-Term Oxidation Stability of Gasoline on Account of MIR Monitoring

This paper describes research which studied the application of Middle Infrared (MIR) spectroscopy technology for monitoring and predicting the long term oxidation stability of gasoline. The oxidation stability of petroleum products becomes a concern when there is a lengthy period of time involving the transportation or tankage of petroleum products at maritime terminals. This paper presents the results of a study of auto-oxidation kinetics of hydrocarbons in gasoline and the application of MIR spectroscopy monitoring fuel oxidation stability. A virtual chemometrical model based on the MIR spectrum analysis is proposed for registering the changes in concentration of olefins, considered to be the dominant factor in the predictive simulation of gasoline oxidation stability.
