Measurement of key molecule increases accuracy of combustion models

Livermore CA (SPX) Feb 13, 2015

Sandia National Laboratories researchers are the first to directly measure hydroperoxyalkyl radicals – a class of reactive molecules denoted as “QOOH” – that are key in the chain of reactions that controls the early stages of combustion. This breakthrough has generated data on QOOH reaction rates and outcomes that will improve the fidelity of models used by engine manufacturers to create clean —> Read More Here
