Combustion Promoters for Hydrocarbon Fuels

We present a review of combustion promoters, including the major classes of organic compounds that can be used in internal combustion engines. We also consider compounds developed that have high promoter action. We give a comparative evaluation of the considered promoters based on analysis of the mechanism of action for the promoters.
