Abstract: Alkadienes are formed during the decomposition of alkanes and play a key role in the formation of aromatics due to their degree of unsaturation. The experiments in this paper examined the decomposition and hydrocarbon growth mechanisms of a wide range of hexadiene isomers in soot-forming nonpremixed flames. Specifically, C3 to C12 hydrocarbon concentrations were measured on the centerlines of atmospheric-pressure methane/air coflowing nonpremixed flames doped with 2000 ppm of 1,3-, 1,4-, 1,5-, and 2,4-hexadie…
