Abstract: The oxidation of n-butyl formate, a potential biofuel candidate, is studied using three different experimental approaches. Ignition delay times have been measured for stoichiometric mixtures of fuel and air for pressures of about 20 and 90 bar at temperatures from 846 up to 1205 K in a high-pressure shock tube. A rapid compression machine has been used to determine the low-temperature ignition delay times for stoichiometric mixtures at pressures close to 20 bar over the temperature range from 646 K up to 861 K…
