Abstract
THE PROPERTIES OF SUPERCRITICAL FLUIDS ARE EMPLOYED TO SEPARATE HETEROAROMATIC COMPOUNDS FROM JP-8 FOR THE PURPOSE OF IMPARTING INCREASED THERMAL OXIDATIVE RESISTANCE TO THE FUEL. THE SELECTIVITY, I.E., THE ABILITY TO REMOVE ESSENTIALLY ONLY HETEROAROMATICS, CAN BE PRESSURE TUNED, AND PRELIMINARY DATA PRESENTED SHOW THAT MULTIRING AROMATICS AND HETEROCYCLIC COMPOUNDS CAN BE SEPARATED FROM JP-A AND JP-T. AS A MEANS OF ASSESSING THE POTENTIAL FOR SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF A PHASE II EFFORT, THE PHASE I WORK INCLUDES A TASK DIRECTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCESS FLOW DIAGRAM AND ECONOMIC VIABILITY ASSESSMENT.
