Composition and Properties of Diesel Fuels -Preliminary Data 490185
THIS report discusses the composition of two diesel fuels: one a straight-run fuel, and the other prepared by catalytic cracking. The oils were investigated by means of silica gel and distillation separation techniques, followed by determination of the physical properties of the fractions.
These are only preliminary conclusions. It is expected that when further data are collected they will elucidate some of the questions that have been raised by the present information and give a clearer picture of the types of compounds that make up these two fuel oils.
