Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) is a carbonate ester that can be produced in an environmentfriendly way from methanol and CO2. DMC is one of the main components of the flammable electrolyte used in Li-ion batteries, and it can also be used as a diesel fuel additive. Studying the combustion chemistry of DMC can therefore improve the use of biofuels and help developing safer Li-ion batteries. The combustion chemistry of DMC has been investigated in a limited number of studies. The aim of this study was to complement the scarce data available for DMC combustion in the literature. Laminar flame speeds at 318 K, 363 K, and 463 K were measured for various equivalence ratios (ranging from 0.7 to 1.5) in a spherical vessel, greatly extending the range of conditions investigated. Shock tubes were used to measure time histories of CO and H2O using tunable laser absorption for the first time for DMC. Characteristic reaction times were also measured through OH* emission. Shock-tube spectroscopic measurements were performed under dilute conditions, at three equivalence ratios (fuel-lean, stoichiometric, and fuel-rich) between 1260 and 1660 K near 1.3±0.2 atm, and under pyrolysis conditions (98%+) ranging from 1230 to 2500 K near 1.3±0.2 atm. Laminar flame speed experiments were performed around atmospheric pressure. Detailed kinetics models from the literature were compared to the data, and it was found that none are capable of predicting the data over the entire range of conditions investigated. A numerical analysis was performed with the most accurate model, underlining the need to revisit at least 3 key reactions involving DMC.
