The fuel library within the standard GT-power software distribution does not comprise of all the species needed to describe LLNL surrogate fuels [15], and hence it was modified to accommodate the following species: cyclopentane, 1-hexene and 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene.
This sample also contained the highest detected concentrations of 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene (200 pg/L), methyl isobutyl ketone (10,000 [micro]g/L), isopropyl alcohol (1,200,000 [micro]g/L), and ethanol (480,000 [micro]g/L).
The solvents used for the solvent-based stains were acetone, n-butyl acetate, xylenes, 2-butoxyethanol, 1-methoxy-2-propanol, toluene, naphta, isobutanol, 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene, butan-1-ol, and 4-hydroxy-4-methyl-2-pentanone.
