Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 7)


Soot in flames is often a necessary component as it makes possible an efficient heat transfer by radiation. Naturally, it must be subsequently destroyed to avoid pollution. The present paper is focussed on soot oxidation by gaseous reagents.
