Abstract: A detailed kinetic mechanism is developed that includes aromatic growth and particulate formation. The model includes reaction pathways leading to the formation of nanosized particles and their coagulation and growth to larger soot particles using a sectional approach for the particle phase. It is tested against literature data of species concentrations and particulate measurements in nonpremixed laminar flames of methane, ethylene, and butene. Reasonably good predictions of gas and particle-phase concentratio…
