Effect of oxidized graphene addition on diesel fuel quality parameters
Keywords:oxidized graphene, diesel fuel quality parameters, fuel performance, transport
The effect of oxidized graphene on the quality parameters of diesel fuel for transport was examined in this study. The research covered base diesel fuel and diesel fuel containing an additive package. Both tested fuels contained no biocomponent. The method of preparing a stable mixture of graphene material in each tested diesel fuels was developed for research purposes. Then, for the fuel samples prepared in this way, tests of quality parameters specified in EN 590  were performed, and the test results were related to the criteria indicated in the mentioned standard. For parameters where it was technically possible to perform the determination, the results showed the influence of the graphene material on the content of solid impurities, oxidative stability and lubricity. For fuel samples containing oxidized graphene, the stability of the mixture under storage conditions was also examined.
