CH4, C2H4, C2H6, C3H8, and nC4H10

The mechanism has been developed to model aromatic and PAH formation in a fuel-rich, n-butane/oxygen/argon, atmospheric flame and a fuel-rich propane flame. The chemical kinetic mechanism has been previously validated for modeling ethane, ethylene and methane fuel-rich flames.
