The twenty-year history of electroerosion has seen many publications on the physical theory of the process, the development of power sources, the advances in equipment design, the process technology, the decontamination of the dielectric, etc. However, there has been hardly any study of the way in which the physicochemical properties of the interelectrode dielectric medium affect the process parameters. The organic media used are mainly various petroleum products (kerosene, oils, etc.), which are, of course, complex mixtures of paraffins, naphthenes, and aromatic hydrocarbons. The individual properties of the components would therefore be expected to have different effects on their decomposition and on the technological characteristics of the process. In some cases this has been confirmed experimentally.
