Abstract

The environmental behavior of dimethoxy methane (DMM), a candidate oxygenate, was evaluated. A series of chemical-kinetic simulations that track the formation of their intermediate or incomplete combustion products was carried out to compare the relative yields of selected air toxics produced from the combustion of DMM and other oxygenates, i.e., ethanol and methanol. The maximum amounts of fuel carbon that could be converted to a particular intermediate species from the combustion of a reference fuel containing 20% oxygenate were presented.
