Abstract: This study examines the effect of unsaturation on the combustion of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME). New experimental results were obtained for the oxidation of methyl (E)-2-butenoate (MC, unsaturated C 4 FAME) and methyl butanoate (MB, saturated C 4 FAME) in a jet-stirred reactor (JSR) at atmospheric pressure under dilute conditions over the temperature range 850-1400 K, and two equivalence ratios (Φ = 0.375, 0.75) with a residence time of 0.07 s. The results consist of concentration profiles of the reactant…
