Abstract: a b s t r a c tHigh-temperature 3-pentanone pyrolysis and oxidation studies were performed behind reflected shock waves using laser-based species time-history measurements (3-pentanone, CH 3 , CO, C 2 H 4 , OH and H 2 O) and ignition delay time measurements. The overall 3-pentanone decomposition rate coefficient was inferred from the measured 3-pentanone and CH 3 time-histories during pyrolysis at temperatures of 1070-1530 K and a pressure of 1.6 atm., and yielded a mathematical expression for k tot = 4.383 Â…
