The aim of the project is experimental data mining required for monitoring intermediates of combustion and minor products of pyrolysis of oxygenated fuels (above all alcohols and ethers) and nitrogen oxides precursors (CN,C2O,NCN) using methods of high esolution FTIR and diode laser spectroscopy. The issue is about the development of advanced diagnostic methods suitable for studies of processes of cleaner combustion with a focus to new types of fuels. These spectroscopic studies represent an initial point for determination of thermochemical parameters and rate coefficients of elementary reactions and for successful simulation of combustion processes.
