Furfuralacetal Compositions as Complex Additives to Diesel Fuels
A method for the preparation of furfural dibutyl and diamyl acetals in a flow-through laboratory apparatus is recommended. Cetane numbers of compositions with butanol and dicumyl peroxide additives are determined, as well as low-temperature properties and sedimentation stability of diesel fuels with 3 wt.% acetals. Lubricating properties of the studied acetals were evaluated, and wear spot diameter values were determined.
