Abstract: The oxidation of syngas mixtures was investigated experimentally and simulated with an updated chemical kinetic model. Ignition delay times for H 2 /CO/O 2 /N 2 /Ar mixtures have been measured using two rapid compression machines (RCM) and shock tubes at pressures from 1 to 70 bar, over a temperature range of 914-2220 K and at equivalence ratios from 0.1 to 4.0. Results show a strong dependence of ignition times on temperature and
