Abstract: A kinetic model is developed to describe combustion of isomers of butanol—n-butanol (n-C4H9OH), secbutanol (sec-C4H9OH), iso-butanol (iso-C4H9OH), and tert-butanol (tert-C4H9OH). A hierarchical approach is employed here. This approach was previously found to be useful for developing detailed and semidetailed mechanism of oxidation of various hydrocarbon fuels. This method starts from lower molecular weight compounds of a family of species and proceeds to higher molecular weight compounds. The pyrolysis and oxi…
