Abstract

A review of critical temperatures for soot formation considering new experimental results from Princeton University and other sources is given. From this the conclusion is drawn that incipient particle formation controls the total mass of soot formed in any process. Approaches to preventing soot formation and growth should be to prevent any soot particles from forming.
