Abstract : The ignition times of Propene Oxygen Argon mixtures were measured in a shock tube. The concentrations ranged from 0.6% to 1.6% C3H6 and 2.7% to 14.4% oxygen. The initial pressures were 50 to 133 torr, and the temperatures achieved were 1274-1848 K. The overall ignition delay equation for Propene Oxygen Argon mixtures has a value of tau = 5.3 x 10 to the minus 14th power exp((37.5 x 10 to 3rd power)/RT)(C3H6) 0.23 (O2) -1.12 (Ar)0 sec. A kinetic scheme for the oxidation of propene is proposed.
