Cobalt and Iron Nanocrystals as Combustion Catalyst for Propulsion Applications

Ferreira, Glenn
2009

Dispersed nanocyrstal catalysts in jet fuels could aid in regeneratively-cooled engines, especial for ramjet application at low Mach speeds. Catalysts could allow combustion at lower temperatures than catalyst-free fuels and can assist in both the oxidation and dehydrogenation steps. N-hexane oxidation was used as a surrogate for jet fuel combustion. The catalyst was also studied in the solid phas... read more
