11. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves for Mixtures of Diesel Fuel with Dimethyl Carbonate and Diethyl Carbonate
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/14/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves of complex fluids. The modifications to the classical measurement provide for (1) a composition explicit data channel for each distillate fraction ...

12. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves for Mixtures of Gasoline with Four-Carbon Alcohols (Butanols)
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/9/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich
Abstract: Interest in the domestic production of bio-derived fuels, sparked by the high cost of petroleum crude oil, has lead to consideration of fluids to replace or extend conventional petroleum derived fuels. While ethanol as a gasoline extender has receive ...

13. Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Jet A and S-8 Aviation Turbine Fuels
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/27/2009
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke, Malte B. Freund
Abstract: The density and speed of sound were measured for three compositions of aviation jet fuel A, and a synthetic fuel (S-8) derived from the Fischer-Tropsch process. Measurements of density and speed of sound were carried out at ambient pressure (83 kPa) ...

14. Determination of Column Selectivity Toward Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/1/1988
Authors: Lane C Sander, Stephen Albert Wise
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=902247

15. Determination of Trace Sulfur in Biodiesel and Diesel Standard Reference Materials by Isotope Dilution Sector Field Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/14/2013
Authors: Steven J Christopher, Stephen E Long, Renata Amais, Joaquim N¿ga
Abstract: A method is described for quantification of sulfur at low concentrations on the order of 10 µg g-1 in biodiesel and diesel fuels using double isotope dilution and sector field inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ID-SF-ICP-MS). Closed vessel ...

16. Determination of sulfur in fossil fuels by isotope dilution electrothermal vaporization inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Lee Lijian Yu, William R. Kelly, John David Fassett, Robert D Vocke Jr.

17. Distinguishing the Relative Contribution of Fossil Fuel and Biomass Combustion Aerosols Deposited at Summit, Greenland through Isotopic and Molecular Characterization of Insoluble Carbon
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: J F. Slater, Lloyd A. Currie, J E Dibb, Bruce A Benner Jr
Abstract: Although the earth's polar regions are isolated from most industrial activity, combustion-generated particles from both fossil fuel and biomass burning impact the regions. Most efforts aimed at quantifying the input of combustion aerosols at Sum ...

18. Evaluation of the Physicochemical Authenticity of Aviation Kerosene Surrogate Mixtures Part I: Analysis of Volatility with the Advanced Distillation Curve
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/19/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Beverly L. Smith
Abstract: Because of the complexities involved in measuring and modeling the performance and properties of finished fuels, the scientific community must often use surrogate mixtures, especially in the absence of consensus standard mixtures. While surrogate mi ...

19. Evaluation of the Physicochemical Authenticity of Aviation Kerosene Surrogate Mixtures Part II: Analysis and Prediction of Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/19/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: In part I of this series of papers, we presented an evaluation strategy that can be applied to surrogate mixtures for finished fuels. This strategy uses the advanced distillation curve approach to evaluate the surrogate in terms of physicochemical a ...

20. Findings and Recommendations from the Joint NIST/AFRL Workshop on Rocket Propellants and Hypersonic Vehicle Fuels
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/25/2008
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Matt Billingsley, Ron Bates
Abstract: The Joint NIST/AFRL Workshop on Rocket Propellants and Hypersonic Vehicle Fuels was held on September 25 and 26, 2008 at the Boulder, Colorado laboratories of NIST. The workshop included oral presentations from staff* of NIST, AFRL, CPIAC, NASA, Sta ...
