Abstract: Due to its considerable advantages over lower alcohols such as ethanol, in particular with regard to its physical properties like volatility, corrosivity, and hygroscopicity, butanol has attracted considerable interest as a potential biofuel candidate. It has therefore been a target of a series of experimental studies probing its combustion characteristics. Nevertheless, its ignition behaviour at elevated pressures still remains widely unexplored. The present study investigates the oxidation of n-butanol at pr…
