Hydrogen (H2)

  • Cheng, R.K., Oppenheim, A.K. Combust. Flame 1984, 58, 125-139. Ignition delay time was determined by onset of pressure.



  • Peterson,E.L., Davidson, D.F., Rohrig, M., Hanson,R.K. 20th Int. Symp. Shock Waves 1996, 941-946. Ignition delay time was determined by onset of CO2 emission.



  • Skinner, G.B. and Ringrose, G.H. J. Chem. Phys. 1965, 42, 2190-2192.



  • Bhaskaran, K.A., Gupta, M.C., Just, T. Combust. Flame 1973, 21, 45-48.
  • Slack, M.W. Combust. Flame 1977, 28, 241-249.


Hydrogen and Carbon monoxide (H2 and CO)

  • Dean, A.M., Steiner, D.C., Wang, E.E. Combust. Flame 1978, 32, 73-83..


Ethylene (C2H4)

  • Brown, C. J. and Thomas, G. O. Combust. Flame 1999, 117, 861-870.



  • Hidaka,Y., Nishimori, T., Sato, K., Henmi, Y., Okuda, R., Inami, K., and Higashihara, T. Combust. Flame 1999, 117, 755-776.



  • Homer, J. B. and Kistiakowsky, G. B. J. Chem. Phys. 1967, 47, 5290-5295.


Propyne and Allene (C3H4)

  • Curran, H.; Simme, J. M.; Dagaut, P.; Voisin, D.; Cathonnet, M. Proc. Combust. Inst. 1996, 26, 613每620. The experimental ignition delay was determined by the appearance of chemiluminescence from the CO+O reaction and by the onset of pressure rise, and the computational ignition delay was determined by the maximum pressure gradient.


Propene (C3H6)

  • Qin, Z., Yang, H., Gardiner, W. C., Jr. Combust. Flame 2001, 124, 246-254.


Propane (C3H8)

  • Burcat, A., Scheller, K., and Lifshitz, A. Combust. Flame 1971, 16, 29. 



  • Qin, Z. Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Texas at Austin (1998).
