Abstract : Fuels for advanced high performance aircraft engines will approach and traverse the critical region; therefore, the unique properties of supercritical fluid solvents on solubilities and reaction rates are applicable here. In the past years we have developed models for the prediction of various thermodynamic properties of compounds which are representative of fuel components and we have studied several reactions in supercritical fluids. The reactions studied in the past three years represent both fuel model reactions and reactions which will provide an increased understanding of molecular level events in SCF reaction mixtures, such as local composition effects in ternary systems.
