Abstract : Correlations have been drawn between nitrogen and sulfur content in jet propulsion fuel and poor fuel performance. Recent studies have suggested that certain nitrogen and sulfur compound classes are more detrimental to fuel performance than others. This report emphasizes the importance of knowing which nitrogen and sulfur compound classes are present in jet propulsion fuel and demonstrates the ability of several capillary gas chromatographic (GC) detectors to selectively detect individual nitrogen and sulfur compounds in these fuels. Keywords: Gas chromatography, Nitrogen, Sulfur, Detectors, Fuels.
