A review is given of recent papers on the phenomenology, kinetics, and mechanism of soot formation in hydrocarbon combustion; the effects of various factors on the formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, fullerenes, and soot, low-temperature soot formation in cool flames, combustion in electric field, and the paramagnetism of soot particles from an ecological viewpoint are considered.
