Abstract : A method for preparation of high density, high energy, low viscosity liquid hydrocarbon fuel by catalytic treatment of tetrahydrodimethyldicyclopentadiene (RJ-4) synthetic fuel. Endo-isomers within the fuel stock are isomerized to exo-isomers by treatment of the fuel stock with catalysts such as aluminum chloride, nickel, or pulverized, acid treated firebrick resulting in a fuel having a lower viscosity than the original RJ-4.
