Abstract : A technique was developed for the identification and preliminary characterization of petroleum fuels utilizing temperature-programmed gas-liquid chromatography. A listing of prepared chromatograms, comprising from gasoline to diesel fuels, are provided as reference standards for profile evaluations. Unknown fuels can be identified as to either gasoline, turbine, or diesel and characterization according to specific grade (or type) or composition (aromatic or paraffinic) can be determined.
