Abstract: The aim of this work is to collect and review the vast amount of experimental data reported in recent years on benzene pyrolysis and oxidation and to analyze them by using and refining a detailed kinetic mechanism, thereby identifying a sensitive and crucial portion of the mechanism itself. Benzene is the first aromatic compound, a relevant intermediate of several combustion processes and also a key precursor to soot formation. The emphasis here is on high pressure pyrolysis experiments, ignition delay times i…
