Abstract : In this proposal it is argued that the thermal stability of most jet fuels would be dramatically improved by the efficient removal of a fuel's dissolved oxygen (in flight). It is envisioned that a thermally activated reaction between the oxygen scavenging additive and dissolved oxygen will occur, in a controlled and directed manner, such that formation of insoluble thermal degradation products will be limited. To date our data has identified several potential additive candidates which meet our preliminary specifications. With continued funding suitable stabilizing additives for super-critical jet fuels will be developed. jg p.1
