Propane oxidation at intermediate temperatures (500—900 K) and high pressure (100 bar) has been characterized by conducting experiments in a laminar flow reactor over a wide range of stoichiometries. The onset of fuel oxidation was found to be 600—725 K, depending on mixture stoichiometry. The model agreed well with the measurements of fuel-rich and stoichiometric mixtures while the model underpredicted the fuel conversion for fuel-lean conditions. Sensitivity analyses revealed the importance of H-abstraction reactions by HO2, OH, and CH3OO in controlling propaneoxidation at 750 K.
