Description of the research topic:
NO emitted to the atmosphere causes photochemical smog and acid rain, while N2O is a greenhouse gas, which is 300 times more effective than CO2. The most significant source of NO in the atmosphere is combustion, mainly furnaces and internal combustion engines. A great part of N2O is also produced during combustion. The aim of the research project is the elaboration of a detailed chemical kinetic model that quantitatively describes the formation of NO and N2O in combustion systems from the nitrogen content of the air and the fuel, and also the conversion of the nitrogen compounds formed back to N2.
